Nonprofit Alliance Awareness Campaign is a collective effort by the Nonprofit Alliance members to own the narrative of nonprofits and substantially advance the understanding of the community about the value and impact of non-profits as a sector. A subgroup of the Nonprofit Alliance has been working together since 2020 to design a campaign that will build awareness and encourage nonprofit engagement and support. In 2021 nonprofits were asked to complete a survey to gather data on common outputs and outcomes. 52 nonprofits responded. This data formed the basis of the campaign.
