A Partnership and a Resource

We believe that the success of nonprofits depends on their ability to deliver on their missions – an ability that depends in large part on the adherence to a disciplined business model.

We are the first place nonprofits turn to in Connecticut when they are faced with the challenges of running their organizations. The Alliance empowers nonprofits by forging connections with programs and resources designed to help groups act as productive forces, including:

• Public Policy and Advocacy
• Information, Research and Referral Services
• Networking and Leadership Development
• Capacity Building Services

Membership with The Alliance is based on your organization’s budget size for the previous fiscal year. We use Line 12 from your most recent Form 990 to determine your annual dues.
