The benefits that flow to your organization include the work of the National Council of Nonprofits to promote a policy environment that supports the advancement of your nonprofit's mission. (Your organization does not pay dues to the Council of Nonprofits directly.) Stay connected to the trends we are spotting and issues we are following by subscribing to our e-newsletters.
