About Nonprofit Network Southwest Washington

We build community by strengthening nonprofits.

Nonprofit Network Southwest Washington is focused on creating an infrastructure of support for local nonprofits in a rapidly growing and dynamic community. Clark County is still relatively closely connected and has a history of partnership based on strong relationships. However over the last two decades, the influx of new people, new organizations, and new needs requires new forums for establishing and renewing relationships. NNSW is helping to create those.

Our work falls within three initiatives:

KNOWLEDGE, COMMUNICATIONS, & GREAT PRACTICES
We provide professional development and support resources for organizations changing to meet community need. Programs are implemented in both structured and informal formats. We welcome partnerships with organizations, education and business.

Program Examples: Resource newsletters; professional development workshops; annual conference; Development Network; E.D. Network; executive peer discussion group.

CIVIL SOCIETY
We are building community through nonprofits, advancing the common good through our individual and collective actions. NNSW brings together organizations with people of passion, ideas and skill. Current programs are focused on strengthening board leadership and engaging people as volunteers and donors.

Program Examples: Giving Circle; Civic Engagement Collective; Community Issue Tours; Board Mentoring Cohort; Advanced Board Discussions; Speed-dating for volunteers.

PUBLIC POLICY
Nonprofit Network educates nonprofits about the changes in government regulation that are transforming how nonprofits operate. We offer workshops and resources for nonprofits to better understand the parameters of legal lobbying and advocacy on behalf of their nonprofits and clients. We put tools in organizations’ hands. We facilitate discussion between government and organizations.

Program Examples: Annual Legislative Coffee; meeting with Congressional Delegation staff; local discussion groups following Washington Nonprofits Public Policy Forum calls.

The nonprofit sector is an essential component of American society, bringing people together to improve their communities. We welcome your involvement!
