Note those hands clasped together in our logo. That's the collaboration that is the heart and soul of SCANPO. We believe there is strength in numbers, and that no one operates well without the support, nurture and encouragement of others. This is especially true for outreach organizations in the nonprofit sector. We are the community's safety-net, which means we need to be each other's professional safety-net and support.
Through our conferences, publications, communications and advocacy efforts, SCANPO seeks to bring together the wisdom and wealth of expertise in this state's impressive nonprofit sector. Collaboration enables us to learn from and with each other, and speak with one strong voice on legislative and policy issues that affect all of us.
We aim to create regional and statewide partnerships to further strengthen the sense of support and collegiality in our nonprofit community. We are only as strong as our members. And never stronger than when we collaborate effectively.
