2020 Census Nonprofit Resources

At GPNP we are working with cross-sectoral partners (Keystone Counts Coalition, Allegheny County-City of Pittsburgh Complete Count Comittee) to mobilize nonprofits for a complete count in southwestern Pennsylvania. Check out our compiled list of national, statewide, and regional resources available to nonprofits reaching out to their communities regarding the 2020 Census.

GPNP held our biennial Summit on Dec. 3, 2019.

Building a region that works for everyone

One of the ways we in Pittsburgh and across southwestern Pennsylvania set ourselves apart from other regions is our appreciation for the power of the nonprofit sector in community life. For more than a decade, thousands of amazing organizations have been enthusiastic participants in a biennial nonprofit summit. This year, we wanted attendees to learn about innovative approaches in fulfilling missions and to move beyond the boundaries of their sectors to know the value of multi-disciplinary alliances. 

Relive the Summit


The Greater Pittsburgh Nonprofit Partnership (GPNP) is a growing coalition of over 450 nonprofit organizations from a ten-county region in southwestern Pennsylvania. GPNP offers an array of services that provide our members with opportunities to deliver a unified voice on emerging public policies that positions the sector to be a collaborative driver of social change. We provide public policy analysis, education, advocacy, and a portfolio of discounts on products and services that meet the current needs of individual members and the nonprofit sector as a whole.
