After 32 years of working to build a strong nonprofit sector in Milwaukee, the Nonprofit Center of Milwaukee (NPC) has closed as of the end of 2018.
NPC provided countless workshops, seminars, trainings, leadership circles, and volunteer opportunities to strengthen nonprofits in Milwaukee and the surrounding communities.
“We are proud of the work that has been done at NPC and the impact it has had on our community,” said former NPC Board of Directors President Raejean Canter. “If you ask the staff at your favorite nonprofit organization where they received training and support, chances are they will tell you about the Nonprofit Center of Milwaukee. And that will be our legacy.”
Two successful programs previously run by NPC — Volunteer Milwaukee, which connected volunteers to meaningful opportunities to serve their community, and the Giving Tree, which provided 13,000 holiday gifts a year to families in need — are now being administered by United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County. The former NPC board plans to continue to communicate with partner organizations to try to find ways to continue some of the organization’s other important programs.
