Washington, D.C. – The National Council of Nonprofits (Council of Nonprofits) is bolstering its efforts to improve government-nonprofit contracting practices with the addition of Beth Bowsky as Policy Specialist – Government-Nonprofit Contracting. A longtime leader and consultant for nonprofits, Bowsky brings a diverse set of skills and experience to the Council of Nonprofits and its network of State Associations, policy allies, and national nonprofit organizations.
Bowsky will be responsible for mobilizing advocacy efforts through broadening public support for needed policy changes in government-nonprofit contracting processes, publishing reports on best practices and solutions, managing the work of a panel of experts, and expanding a centralized public website for practitioners and researchers.
“Our initiative, in collaboration with the Urban Institute, to improve government-nonprofit contracting practices is vital to the continued health of charitable nonprofits and the communities they serve. Beth Bowsky’s experience from both the government and nonprofit sides of this equation and her passion for bringing the right people together to find solutions will be invaluable moving forward,” said Tim Delaney, President and CEO of the National Council of Nonprofits.
As one of the youngest people in Ohio to become executive director of a multi-service, nonprofit organization, Bowsky learned from the ground up the importance of collaboration and the power of public support. Bowsky’s work as president of her own consulting firm included helping the Ohio Children’s Trust Fund reorganize and streamline collaborative funding efforts in each of the state’s 88 counties. As a National Leadership Consultant for Arlington, Va.-based National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), Bowsky assisted state organizations across the country build and implement strategic plans for growth, governance, and advocacy, while also serving as a speaker and trainer at state and national conventions. She has also served in leadership positions on a number of nonprofit boards. Bowsky is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati.
