The Alliance offers comprehensive Learning opportunities to assist members with grant writing, marketing, governance and more. We believe that actionable knowledge can power extraordinary results for nonprofits — of any size and type; and that learning overall, has to reflect the different ways in which people learn and meet the changing objectives of their nonprofit. Through The Alliance, nonprofits gain access to a deep well of information, including current data and research that are vital for forwarding their missions and conducting business.
