About this grant

This grant supports the National Council of Nonprofits, the nation’s largest network of nonprofits, now with more than 25,000 member organizations across the country. Its mission is to advance the vital role, capacity, and voice of charitable, nonprofit organizations. The council works through its network of state associations to amplify the collective voice of America’s charitable, nonprofit organizations (especially local, community-based, and small to mid-size). The council has helped nonprofits operate more effectively, collaborate and exchange solutions, engage in critical policy issues affecting the sector, and achieve greater impact in their communities. During the grant period, the grantee will continue to provide technical assistance to nonprofits, share best practices and other relevant information, and offer networking opportunities to state and regional associations.
