Community Slack

Nonprofit Association of Washington’s Community Slack brings together board, staff, and volunteers at nonprofits around Washington State to connect, collaborate, and strengthen the sector.

Slack is an online chatroom where you can control what you see by joining different topic “channels” based on your interests. Anyone can share messages, images, internet links, videos, and more in these channels, allowing peer-to-peer connection and learning. You can engage in conversation with nonprofits in your region, share relevant information, and brainstorm solutions. You can also ask questions and collaborate through direct messages and private groups!

Slack is easy for non-technical users to pick up and can be accessed through the Slack website on a web browser or by downloading the desktop and/or mobile apps.

NAWA’s Community Slack is intended to be a welcoming, inclusive, and harassment-free space for all members of the nonprofit community – inclusive of all gender identities, sexual orientations, physical abilities and appearances, and beliefs. The following Code of Conduct is written to uphold that commitment.

The Community Slack is regularly moderated. If you are found in violation of the following guidelines you will be warned and potentially removed from the community.

All members of Nonprofit Association of Washington’s Community Slack agree to the following:

  1. Engage in professional and respectful dialogue. This means no harassment or discriminatory, insulting, or vulgar behavior. Harassment includes, but is not limited to; deliberate intimidation, disruption of conversations, personal attacks, insults, or the use of sexual or discriminatory imagery, comments, or jokes. We reserve the right to delete posts that contain any of the above, as well as any posts containing profanity or racial slurs.
  2. Do not share any information posted by others on this platform without the consent of the original poster. We want this space to be one in which everyone feels free to ask questions without fear of judgment.

The Community Slack is a space for support and collaboration.
  3. Do not use the Community Slack to sell a product, solicit business, or seek donations. This is a community space and not one to market your organization or product. If you have a learning event or training opportunity that is of benefit to nonprofits, please post to #events or #trainings.
