Serving the Community

A strong and vibrant nonprofit sector is vital to a thriving Waukesha County.  We are proud to have numerous nonprofit organizations within our membership.  Nonprofits play a crucial role in strengthening the fabric of our community by providing critical services, fostering civic engagement, driving economic growth as employers, serving some of our most vulnerable citizens, and enhancing the quality of life within Waukesha County.


Nonprofit Alliance Highlights:

We host a Nonprofit Executive Council for our nonprofit members to provide thought leadership on how nonprofits can strengthen their organizations and better serve the business community. A diverse group of nonprofit organizations are represented on the council, which meets quarterly. If you want to learn more about the Nonprofit Executive Council, please get in touch with the Alliance.

Nonprofit members receive discounted registration fees for many of our programs. In addition, all nonprofit members can advertise in AllianceMarketplace at no charge two times per year.
