Affinity Groups

The Nonprofit Partnership Affinity Groups are an exclusive member only benefit designed to build and strengthen community through peer learning, shared ideas and common ground. They are safe spaces for members to come together around a specific field or function (Executives, Volunteerism,  Arts, etc.), to network with each other, build collaboration, and provide and receive support.

Our Affinity Group offerings further our mission to build the capacity of nonprofits so they can make a positive change in their community.

I have always learned so much by attending the Affinity Groups, and appreciate everything the Nonprofit Partnership and you do…I wanted to thank and share with you that the success of our fundraiser would not have been possible without all the resources you and the attendees of the Affinity Group provided me. You all have really been my teachers and mentors; before this year I knew nothing about development or nonprofit organizations.
