Strengthen the ability of all Tri-City nonprofit organizations to successfully accomplish their respective missions by collaborating, sharing information, and raising community awareness.
Spearheaded by a team of long-time Tri-City area residents active with community nonprofits, this project was inspired by a desire to strengthen the many nonprofits through idea and resource sharing, and more.
Current TCNC objectives include creating a collaborative environment, providing an information hub useful to Tri-City nonprofits and community members, facilitating learning opportunities, strengthening partnerships, and building an alliance of supporting businesses, organizations, and individuals who wish to support nonprofits’ success.
Resources under consideration include a nonprofit directory, a comprehensive event calendar, a list of volunteer opportunities, a library of vendors and professional service resources, educational and networking events, a newsletter, and a virtual bulletin board to share nonprofit job openings and other useful information.
