About Us

Nonprofit Association of Washington (NAWA) convenes a powerful network of nonprofit organizations across Washington State to learn, advocate, and collaborate, so that nonprofits can achieve their missions.

Through participation in our network, nonprofits (staff, board, and volunteers) become more sustainable and effective.
