What our members and sponsors are saying.

As a sponsor, we are able to see firsthand how GPNP is dedicated to educating not-for-profits on issues that affect them and the Pittsburgh region. The GPNP Summit provides another opportunity to observe, collaborate and discover ways to make our community a better place to live and work. A more knowledgeable community is essential to a vibrant local economy.

Rachel Trunk

It is essential for a healthy nonprofit sector to have a knowledgeable, strong advocate…at its best, GPNP works for all of us to seek to ensure recognition of the value of nonprofits and fierce assertion that the nonprofit community is the backbone of a just, decent and humane society. I am grateful to GPNP for their intelligent work for us all.
Peggy Outon

President & CEO, Bayer Center for Nonprofit Management

What I have experienced with GPNP is the amazing workshops, webinars, using the Catchafire pilot for 17 projects for The Stepping Stone Pathways as well as utilizing the Executive-in-Residence program. The GPNP Summit means that people who are not able to attend in person can attend to virtual webinars and still benefit from some of the informational sessions that are being offered. During the summit [we had] sessions that teach you HOW to achieve your goal; it is invaluable to grow and expand your business.

Alice Washington

Executive Director, The Stepping Stone Pathways

The GPNP network is a powerful one. As a small nonprofit, we benefit from the opportunity to learn from, mirror, and collaborate with nonprofits across Western PA. When it comes to policy, one of the challenges as the Executive Director of a small nonprofit is that I am responsible for both quickly learning and effectively explaining new policy to my staff. GPNP helps me understand policy that I never knew I needed to know — as well as how to communicate it to my staff.
