Our Mission

The mission of the Nonprofit Association of Oregon is to strengthen the collective voice, leadership, and capacity of nonprofits to enrich the lives of all Oregonians.

What We Value

The Role of Nonprofits in Our Society
We believe nonprofits play an exceptional and vital role in our communities and in our state. The sector enriches community life, offers people a way to participate, stands up for underrepresented people, provides needed services, and pioneers solutions to social and economic problems. To fulfill these roles, the nonprofit sector needs a strong collective voice.

Innovation, Investment, Stewardship
We believe the role of nonprofits is central to addressing social challenges and opportunities. Nonprofits are critical to the creation of a better future through their innovation, entrepreneurship, creative use of resources, and ability to engage communities in shared visions. We believe strongly in investing in the capacity of nonprofits to build the systems and infrastructure they need to develop effective and sustainable organizations. We are careful stewards of all human, financial, and natural resources. We use the time and talents of those working with us effectively, we spend the funds invested in us wisely, and we are environmentally responsible.

The Diversity of the People of Oregon
We respect and include all of Oregon’s people, cultures, regions, and political views. We believe that nonprofits play a leadership role in establishing cross-cultural effectiveness.
