It’s Our 1 Year Slack-iversary

We created the Community Slack – an online communication platform where you can join “channels” based on interest – to bring together board, staff, and volunteers at nonprofits around Washington State to connect, collaborate, and strengthen the sector. It’s been a year since we launched, and things certainly aren’t slacking!

Here are some highlights of one year on Slack:

  • In a year, we have grown to 543 users!
  • Week to week, the number of users actively engaging with Slack (posting, reacting, etc.) varies. Over the past 11 weeks, we have tracked the highest daily count of users who are active users during that week. On average, 71 users are active a day.
  • Users have 28 channels on various topics to engage in: art-n-culture, board, donate-swap, eastern-wa, ed-ceo, equity, español, finance, funding, fundraising, general, housing-and-homelessness, introductions, islands, jobs, Kittitas-npn, lgbtq2s, people-and-culture, policy-updates, prof-devt-and-training, random-just4fun, rural, slack-help, tech-tools, and volunteer-mgmt. There are two channels specific to Community Engagement groups: community-engagers and equity-ambassador.
  • We have nearly every county represented, but we’re missing y’all in Pacific, Lewis, Wahkiakum, Klickitat, Douglas, Adams, Franklin, Columbia, and Garfield Counties!

Folks are making connections, crowdsourcing ideas and solutions, finding candidates for open positions, sharing photos of their work, and so much more. Experiencing FOMO yet?! It’s free to join, open to all nonprofit people across Washington, and only grows stronger every day!
