Nonprofit and Community-Based Organizations Services

To help strengthen your capacity, everything we offer builds upon skills that you and in your organization already hold. We help you meet critical organizational needs and provide you with tools and trainings that build skills and support your organization’s long-term health. We offer a range of services, including trainings, clinic opportunities, and cohort models of support.

Our aim is that you will feel connected and supported to take on the challenges involved in building power in your community. Together, over time, we’ll begin to transform our communities, as well as the nonprofit, microenterprise, public, and philanthropic sectors.

While we would love to assist everyone, please note our services are intended for Washington state organizations.
