About Us

Home About Us

The CT Community Nonprofit Alliance (The Alliance) is the statewide association of community nonprofits in Connecticut. Our mission is to advance excellence in community-based nonprofits through advocacy and capacity building. We share the passion and purpose behind each and every organization’s mission and channel that purpose into a powerful, collective voice. We lead from a position of strength, representing nonprofits while presenting a united front before the Connecticut state legislature, state agencies, the public and the media. We advance strategies and public policies that make it possible for nonprofits to thrive.

As the nonprofit funding landscape continues to evolve, The Alliance works closely on all fronts to empower nonprofits small and large to adapt, survive and thrive. The delivery of high quality, effective, and efficient services is a top priority. Members can fulfill their missions while realizing tremendous savings to their bottom lines by taking advantage of the increased buying power and cost-saving benefits that come with being part of The Alliance. 

Together, we are much more powerful and influential than we can be as individual agencies.

The 2022 Legislative Session adjourned this evening with two major victories for The Alliance: First, the state budget passed Tuesday night increases funding for community nonprofits by more than $330 million over two years ago, June 30, 2021.
We thank the leaders of the state House and Senate for approving an FY23 state budget that includes desperately-needed funding increases. The budget includes $220.4 million in new money for nonprofit providers.

The funding increase for community nonprofits in the budget agreement reached today will improve the lives of thousands of people across Connecticut who are served by nonprofits and the staff who deliver those services.

As the Governor and legislative leaders meet today to negotiate a final state budget, including an 8% increase in funding for struggling community nonprofits who contract with the state, any reduction in that amount will have a dangerous impact on the state’s safety net.
Gian-Carl Casa said agencies don’t have good answers for the families being asked to wait for help.

“I don’t know how we can go back to people who depend on nonprofit services and say, ‘They [state officials] made other choices.’” https://t.co/r2Cl6iZZPw @CTMirror
