Mission: from their website:

What it is is the premier information and advice resource for nonprofit organizations in Massachusetts.

Whatever its focus, every nonprofit can benefit from learning how other nonprofits solve practical operational and strategic issues. The goal is to share information so that all can flourish. It's the idea behind "Inform. Share. Thrive."

Why it's needed

The Massachusetts nonprofit sector is vital and growing, but lacks cost-effective and convenient access to critical information and expert advice. More than half of the more than 25,000 nonprofits in the state were established in the last 15 years, one-fifth of them since 2000. More than 75% have annual incomes of $1 million or less, and 61% have annual incomes under $250,000.

Given limited resources, nonprofits of all sizes need funding to thrive and achieve their missions. But they also need information and tools to enhance their organizational capacity in such key areas as:

* Employee relations, compensation, and benefits
* Information systems and technology
* Marketing, public relations, and promotion
* Fund-raising and financial management
* Volunteerism, constituent relations, and board relations

Until now there has been no up-to-date, authoritative resource — in print or online — devoted to informing and supporting Massachusetts nonprofits. solves this problem. targets the needs of:

* Employees at nonprofits
* Directors and other advisors to nonprofits
* People seeking work at nonprofits
* Volunteers at nonprofits
* Providers of products and services to the nonprofit sector
