About Washington Nonprofits

Washington Nonprofits is the state association for nonprofits, recognized by the National Council of Nonprofits. Our mission is to build a strong, collaborative network of nonprofits serving Washington communities through advocacy, education and capacity building. Our programs are categorized into 5 areas:

• Public Policy and Advocacy
• Group Discounts on 3rd Party Products and Services
• Information, Research and Referral Services
• Networking and Leadership Development
• Capacity Building Service Assurance

MEMBERSHIP
Membership in Washington Nonprofits gives members access to 3rd party products and services such as unemployment insurance services, audio and web conferencing systems, reference checks, computer backups, credit card processing and more. Members are also able to access information, research and referral services, such as the annual Nonprofits in Washington Report. Another benefit of membership is member discounts on Washington Nonprofits events such as trainings or conferences.

NETWORK
We are networking organizations across the State through Regional Councils, councils composed of nonprofit and community leaders who gather to discuss the health and needs of the nonprofit sector in their region. Our other networking program, the Collaborative, serves to network organizations and individuals who support nonprofit capacity building for the purpose of sharing strategies, initiatives, challenges and solutions.

CAPACITY BUILDING
In addition, Washington Nonprofits supports capacity building efforts throughout the State. We map areas of greatest need for nonprofits and rally the resources to tackle challenges; partnering with local organizations and moving to the next opportunity when that organization can meet the identified needs independently.

PUBLIC POLICY
Washington Nonprofits’ public policy program gathers together nonprofit voices from across the State and educates policy makers and the general public about nonprofits needs and about the strength and importance of the sector in our communities and our State.
