Did you know that the Nonprofit Leaders Conference was created in response to the Great Recession? In those times, nonprofits were tasked with providing critical resources to our communities while navigating new and unfamiliar territory and many unknowns.

“In the midst of the ‘Great Recession,’ many nonprofits were struggling to survive in an environment of lost jobs and hunger where their work was needed most. Also, local governments were struggling and unable to provide needed services to local residents. With these points in mind, the Conference was organized to provide opportunities for nonprofits in Mason, Grays Harbor, Pacific and Wahkiakum counties in particular, for 1) training by professionals with extensive nonprofit experience, 2) networking and identifying common goals and needs, and 3) to hear from and meet with foundation leaders in plenary sessions and speed meets.”
Mayor Crystal Dingler, NPLC Founding Member, 2007

Then and now—we remain deeply dedicated to our mission of strengthening rural and coastal nonprofits. We’ll get through this, together.
