Here’s what our members have to say:

“When we needed to make the leap from a grassroots volunteer-run effort to an incorporated 501(c)(3) with a board and a full-time director, SCANPO provided invaluable support. We constantly refer to SCANPO’s Guiding Principles and Best Practices, and reach out to fellow members for counsel and support. It’s been the smartest move we’ve made.”

Kim Clifton, Executive Director, HALOS


“Being a SCANPO member means we’re part of a solid, strong team, all working to improve the nonprofit sector across the state. I gain valuable skills through SCANPO workshops, and love the colleagues I meet.”

Anita Case, Director, Affinity Health Centerr
