CI:Now becomes 501(c)3 nonprofit

As CI:Now rounds out our second decade of democratizing data, we’re excited to announce that we have transitioned to a 501(c)3 nonprofit structure. Nonprofit status simplifies the grant and contract arrangements that support our growing operations, while preserving community ownership and leadership via our volunteer Board of Directors, formerly called the Policy Group.

United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County, one of CI:Now’s late 1990s founders and its fiscal agent and funder in every year since, remains a strong working partner in our efforts to turn data into information Texas communities can use to make our world better. CI:Now’s core staffing will remain with the UTHealth School of Public Health in San Antonio, a great academic partner to our community focus. CI:Now will continue to serve as a local partner in the National Neighborhood Indicators Project and a member of the Community Indicators Consortium and the San Antonio Nonprofit Council.
