Nonprofit leaders from across Washington have long acknowledged the need for a statewide nonprofit association that could provide a voice for the more than 50,000 nonprofits in our state. A state association would provide Washington’s nonprofit sector with better representation in state and federal policy decisions, improved access to programs and funds, and access to services and programs to build their capacity.

Washington Nonprofits' mission is to build a strong, collaborative network of nonprofits serving Washington communities through advocacy, education and capacity building.
