Tennessee Nonprofit Network

We build the momentum of the nonprofit sector in Tennessee to create equitable, measurable, and lasting change.

Our Vision

We work towards a future in Tennessee where:
Nonprofits have an equal seat at the table alongside government, businesses, and philanthropy and are united to solve community problems.
Nonprofits are effective and sustainable.
Nonprofits have broad representation at the local, state, and federal level.
A high-quality nonprofit workforce is the norm — where individuals are reaching their maximum potential and are motivated to work for the greater good.

How We Do It

Tennessee Nonprofit Network serves as the statewide nonprofit association for Tennessee. The organization provides training and technical assistance, connections to resources, and sector-wide research and public policy support to nonprofits in Tennessee and those that serve Tennessee residents.


We help like-minded professionals in the nonprofit sector connect with each other. Our sector is strengthened and our community is better served through collective action.


We provide high-quality learning opportunities so that nonprofit professionals can thrive and more effectively serve our community.
