Whatcom Nonprofit Network

Laurel_Hammond_WNP-9croppedreducedWe believe a healthy and vibrant nonprofit sector is critical to keeping our community strong. Our local organizations work in diverse areas; from feeding hungry families to restoring healthy salmon runs. Behind all of this good work, we are fortunate to have many passionate leaders and supporters.

The Whatcom Nonprofit Network (WNN), a program of the Whatcom Community Foundation, is a networking hub and educational resource that strengthens the sector. WNN also provides networking opportunities, special trainings, an online calendar and a newsletter that includes resources, event information and more.

The work of this program is powered by staff and volunteers, focused on:
  • Building relationships and making connections through networking events and educational workshops.
  • Professional development and resource sharing through a regular enewsletter, peer learning opportunities, and an online nonprofit scheduling calendar.
  • Information and advocacy to promote nonprofit news and engage community leaders with local nonprofits.
