Alliance for Nevada Nonprofits

In 2007, Charles Schwab Bank began providing a series of programs for nonprofits in the Reno area called the Nonprofit Capacity Building Roundtable. An informal consortium of over sixty northern Nevada nonprofits attending the roundtables appointed a task force to examine the feasibility of establishing a nonprofit association. This task force conducted research, including interviews of networks of nonprofits and surveys of nonprofit staff, to determine the available resources and gaps in service delivery for nonprofits in the region. From its research, the consortium determined that the local nonprofits could benefit from:

Professional development of nonprofit leaders
Coordination of capacity building programs and services
A public awareness effort that would increase support for nonprofits
Joint purchasing power for commodities such as insurance
A unified voice on public policy issues

To address these gaps in services and programs, the consortium task force recommended the following:

Develop a sustainable and entrepreneurial business model for a nonprofit membership organization that can provide needed programs and services and act as a unified voice for the nonprofit community.
Work with existing nonprofit networks, programs, and services to capitalize on economies of scale and avoid duplication.
Launch the organization with enough start-up funds and human capital to operate a sustainable membership organization that delivers relevant and market-sensitive products and services.

At the February 8, 2008, Schwab roundtable, the consortium of nonprofits endorsed the formation of an association and appointed a steering committee to complete additional research on the region’s needs and create a work plan for forming the association. Additional research of this steering committee ultimately determined that a nonprofit association should be formed and the application to the IRS to secure a 501(c)3 designation was completed. This new organization is the Alliance for Nevada Nonprofits (ANN), and its mission is “to strengthen communities by increasing the influence and capacity of Nevada’s nonprofit sector.”
