Nonprofit Organizations

InfoInfo TalkTalk

Nonprofit Organizations play a vital role in our community by focusing resources and providing services to community needs without regard to profit. See our Talk Page for additional terminology and discussion of not-for-profit organizations.

On this and related pages we include a variety of organizations, some more formally organized than others. Some of the nonprofit organizations, such as hospitals, are categorized into separate collections, either here or on separate pages. Also Activism lists many typically less formal not-for-profit groups that believe in a cause.

Most of these organizations are actively soliciting volunteers - see individual organization pages or their websites for more information. Our Volunteer page also lists several volunteer "matching" resources as well as organizations other than nonprofits that are looking for volunteers.
