About this grant

This general purpose grant supports the National Council of Nonprofit Associations’ effort to strengthen the national network of state nonprofit associations and develop their capacity to support community-based organizations throughout the country. The organization serves over 20,000 members in 41 states and the District of Columbia, linking local organizations (especially small and midsized nonprofits) to a national audience through state associations. Recognizing the challenges facing the nonprofit sector through increased scrutiny and regulations, the council continues to provide technical assistance, share best practices and other relevant information, and offer networking opportunities to state and regional associations to enhance their ability to increase their members’ effectiveness and accountability and to better represent their members at the public policy level.
