Nonprofit Network Southwest Washington is focused on creating an infrastructure of support for local nonprofits in a rapidly growing and dynamic community. Now is exactly the right time to connect local organizations, align values and further develop common good. Clark County has a history of partnership based on strong relationships and is still relatively closely connected. However, the influx of new people, (population doubling in last 20 years), new organizations (40% increase last 10 years), and new needs coupled with retirement of many leaders requires new forums for establishing and renewing relationships. We build community by publicly recognizing and strengthening our community’s investment in the nonprofit sector.
