Connecting Non-Profits and the Community
The Chamber works to support our local nonprofits through the Nonprofit Alliance (NPA). This initiative seeks to develop and strengthen partnerships among the nonprofit, private and public sectors in order to help improve quality of life in the area. The NPA strives to raise awareness of the economic impact, needs and values of local non-profit organizations.
