About this grant

Established in 1990, the National Council of Nonprofits is the nation’s largest network of nonprofits, representing more than 28,000 organizations across the country. The grantee’s mission is to advance the vital role, capacity and voice of charitable nonprofit organizations. The grantee works through its network of state associations and nonprofit partners to help nonprofits operate more effectively, engage in critical policy issues affecting the sector and achieve greater impact in their communities. During the past year, the grantee strengthened its network by providing knowledge support on operational matters that were especially needed during the pandemic. Over the next two years, the National Council of Nonprofits will: 1) carry out educational initiatives to promote a supportive policy environment for the work of charitable nonprofits; 2) expand its network and deepen the engagement of its members; and 3) provide trusted information to nonprofits, the media and the public.
