1. Adaptability! We are inspired by your ability to respond quickly to changing needs in your community, whether it’s responding to natural disasters or helping families understand new policies coming out of Washington DC. You step up, and step outside your lane to meet the immediate needs in your communities.

2. Political clout! Nonprofits don't "just" serve communities, we advocate for them too. Our alliance is 10,000 strong and last year we supported the creation of the new Assembly Select Committee on Nonprofits to further elevate our issues and voices.

3. Celebrating nonprofit impact! We love hearing about your work and the impact you have in your communities. By raising the profile of our sector together, we can do things like crush the overhead myth, or make sure we Vote with Our Missions.

4. Powering California's economy! Nonprofits employ nearly 1 million people (6% of our state's workforce). You are an economic force to be reckoned with.

5. Freedom to be who you need us to be! Membership accounts for almost one third of our budget - giving us the freedom to pivot quickly, and take stances and develop initiatives focused on supporting your staff, your impact, and the larger nonprofit community in California.
