A full version can be found on the website / below includes some quotes from Ms. Smith from the piece:

"Nonprofits in the United States ... can be a great force behind our collective agenda to rebuild the country. You also have an asset that no other president has ever had – four generations of social entrepreneurs as well as experienced nonprofit and foundation leaders who are fighting every day to change the landscape of countless social issues."

"As you take office, I hope you will become the nonprofit sector’s “champion-in-chief.”

"The good news is that we do not have to start from scratch. Brilliant minds from across the country – both before and during the pandemic – have started the conversations and just need leadership to build consensus and take ideas to scale."

"With your help, our nonprofit executives and social entrepreneurs can be this beacon of light and build an even stronger, more resilient 'union with purpose.'”
