Partnerships are key to the success of any nonprofit organization. They allow organizations to do much more together than what they could do alone. Partnerships permit organizations to leverage each other's strengths and resources so that together, they can elevate the sector and the communities we serve.
For YNPN Greater Seattle, partnerships have helped us connect with new young professionals in the nonprofit sector and offer quality programming to our members. In the last year, partnerships have helped us fuel our chapter's growth and through the Community Partnerships committee we hope to continue the spirit of collaboration and support of leadership development.
In recognition of this support, we wanted to give a quick shout out to the community partners who have collaborated with us in the last 12 months.
- Young Nonprofit Leaders Organization
- Young Professionals Network of the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber
- NGEN / Independent Sector
- YNPN National

And finally, thank you to former board members who continue to support YNPN Greater Seattle by letting people know about our monthly coffee and happy hours and for still stopping by sometimes!
