GPNP held our biennial Summit on Dec. 3, 2019, with over 1,000 leaders in attendance!

Hosted by The Forbes Funds, the GPNP Summit $1,500 benefit is accessible to all our members, as well as our corporate sponsors, consultants, and partners.

For more than a decade, thousands of amazing organizations have been enthusiastic participants in a biennial nonprofit summit. This past year, attendees learned more about innovative approaches and opportunities in fulfilling missions and to move beyond the boundaries of their sectors to know the value of multi-disciplinary alliances.

“I thought I understood the value of networking, and then I attended the GPNP summit and learned the true value of networking. I thought I understood the value of continuing professional development and education, and then I joined GPNP and learned the true value of continued learning. I didn’t think I could be inspired by nonprofit speakers, and then I attended GPNP events and summit and became inspired.”

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.

GPNP creates a dynamic and vibrant network of change makers committed to strengthening our region. It is a powerful and necessary force in tackling some of our most pressing issues. The GPNP Summit is a transformational experience. At the Summit, I’ve learned key skills and built partnerships and a network to collaborate on a more strategic level.
Chris Cooke

Former Executive Director, Pittsburgh Urban Leadership Service Experience (PULSE)

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

As a GPNP member and partner for over a decade I am proud to be associated with a membership
organization that cares both about its members and those they serve. Pittsburgh has a strong and
vibrant nonprofit community because of the continued efforts of GPNP.

The GPNP Summit for years has provided the opportunity to build stronger personal and professional relationships. I can only imagine the partnerships that have been formed as a direct result of conversations at past Summits. I have no doubt this year’s Summit will continue that trend.
