APRIL 2015

Join us in raising awareness about the impact of nonprofits
Scratch the surface of why people love Washington and you’ll find a strong network of nonprofit organizations delivering on their mission. Nonprofits create jobs, develop community leaders, and invest significant financial and human resources. April is when we remind people that nonprofits make life better for every person in every community in our state.

There are three ways to help:

2. Participate in our super-easy Social Media Campaign
3. Send our press kit to your newspaper
