Whether you are a nonprofit, or a business that serves nonprofits, a consultant, or funder interested in supporting the nonprofit sector, NPC membership is a great way to connect, collaborate, find support, and access products and services to help your organization sustain and grow. Annual membership dues are based on a sliding fee scale according to annual revenue:
|Nonprofits with revenue up to $199,999||$75|
|Nonprofits with revenue above $200,000–$750,000||$125|
|Nonprofits with revenue above $750,000||$195|
|(Acknowledged as sponsors of the mission)|
The Business Affiliate and Partner categories are designed for companies and consultants that provide programs and/or services to nonprofit organizations. NPC membership provides an opportunity for businesses to gain visibility, increase reach, and connect with nonprofit leaders. Business and Foundation Partners will be considered sponsors (and recognized as such in NPC’s promotional materials).
Technical assistance is offered by the hour or on a project basis. Having an experienced advisor with extensive nonprofit background, familiar with local funders, and adept at marketing, management & planning provides real value for the money. For those with limited financial capacity, assistance with fundraising and grant writing to secure funds for capacity building efforts will be provided.
Products such as the Annual Giving Guide and Holiday Fair will be supported by advertising and modest participation fees. The balance of products and services will be offered free of charge, supported in part by grants and donations. Learn more about products and services here.
