Stronger Together

The Alliance is the strong, persistent, and unified voice for the hundreds of community nonprofit organizations we represent. Together we make change and increase nonprofits’ influence through our unrelenting advocacy.

The Alliance speaks collectively and forcefully, providing members with a consistent presence at the State Capitol. We advocate on members’ behalf to protect critical funding sources and to advance funding initiatives and public policy. We are a reliable resource of information to the Connecticut General Assembly, government agencies and the public, building important relationships that are vital to assert influence when it matters most.
