The Alliance has two types of membership – Nonprofit and Associate.
• Nonprofit membership is limited to 501(c)3 organizations.
• Associate membership is open to other businesses and consultants who work with nonprofits in Connecticut.
Nonprofit membership in The Alliance offers exclusive access to many benefits that help 501(c)3’s achieve their mission and save time and money. Any 501(c)3 nonprofit organization registered in Connecticut is eligible for membership. Dues are determined by the annual operating budget of the organization.
A Powerful Voice.
We lead from a position of strength, representing organizations while presenting a united front before the Connecticut Legislature, state agencies, other advocacy organizations, the public and the media. As a collective voice we develop strategies and public policies that make it possible for nonprofits to thrive.
Together we are much more powerful and influential than we can be as individual agencies.
