Our Partners.

A Collaborative Partnership.

​“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” – African Proverb

Each year, the Nonprofit Collaborative Conference strives to see how far we can go…together. Together as a sector, together with other sectors, and together with our communities. The “Collaborative” in “Collaborative Conference” refers not only to the spirit of the experience we hope to build for our attendees but also to the approach we take to building that experience. This year, Alliance for Nonprofit Resources (ANR), Greater Pittsburgh Nonprofit Partnership (GPNP), the PA Association of Nonprofit Organizations (PANO), and the Department of Public Administration at Villanova University are once again proud to be part of the team putting the “collaborative” in Collaborative Conference. Scroll down to learn more about each partner here.

Alliance for Nonprofit Resources

At Alliance for Nonprofit Resources (ANR), we know that nonprofits are founded on a dream to make a difference, to make something better. Since 2008, ANR has been working with nonprofit organizations in the community to maximize their potential. Through a variety of management and support services, ANR has continued to provide essential assistance to nonprofit organizations to enable them to fulfill their missions. We can give you the support you need to focus on what you do best – making a difference in the world, one person at a time.

Greater Pittsburgh Nonprofit Partnership

The Greater Pittsburgh Nonprofit Partnership (GPNP) is a program of The Forbes Funds, and a growing coalition of over 450 nonprofit organizations from a ten-county region in southwestern Pennsylvania. GPNP provides public policy analysis, education, advocacy, and an entrée into capacity-building resources that meet the current needs of individual members and the nonprofit sector as a whole. GPNP is proud to be a Collaborative Conference partner because it is an effort to collectively strengthen the nonprofit sector and develop relationships across the Commonwealth.

PA Association of Nonprofit Organizations

PANO (the Pennsylvania Association of Nonprofit Organizations) is the only statewide membership organization supporting the thousands of nonprofits that serve millions of people in our Commonwealth. We are over 1,000 members strong, with representation in every corner of the state. Our mission is to amplify the impact of those 1,000+ members and the countless other nonprofits that make up PA’s community benefit sector. We aim to help build, strengthen, and support healthy, ethical organizations through advocacy, collaboration, promising practices, consultation, robust (often discounted!) programs, and just about anything else you can think of. We believe that by coming together and leveraging our collective value, Pennsylvania communities and the power to do good will thrive.

Department of Public Administration
at Villanova University

The Department of Public Administration is committed to preparing students to develop the skills they need to become ethical, creative, inclusive, and intelligent leaders in public service. The Department offers courses and programs at both the undergraduate and Master’s level, both on-campus and online.
