Latest News for Nonprofits

Earthquake in Napa! We all read the headlines, but when the headlines go away, it's easy to forget that nonprofits in Napa not only sustained damage themselves, but most of them have extra work helping the people and neighborhoods who have lost so much. We're pleased to announce that in conjunction with the Napa Valley Coalition of Nonprofit Agencies, CalNonprofits is offering free one-year memberships for up to 100 nonprofits in the Napa Valley, as our way of saying, "Hey, we're with you.”

Membership in CalNonprofits provides access to our exclusive health insurance brokerage; discounts on office supplies, background checks, printing, shipping, and more; discounted prices for events, such as the upcoming Stronger Together conference on October 24,; and being part of our community of nearly 10,000 members. Napa county nonprofits: contact Christina Dragonetti at CalNonprofits by October 31 to sign up!
