Who We Are

About Us

The Long Beach Nonprofit Partnership was formed in 1993 by a small group of community leaders and nonprofit professionals who believed in the importance of a strong, well-supported nonprofit community in Long Beach. They put into place a series of high-quality, cost-effective programs to provide training, promote collaborative opportunities, enhance resource development and aid in capacity-building for the full range of nonprofit organizations. Today, the Partnership is a vital and growing resource for over 3,000 community-based organizations in the greater Long Beach area. We offer information, referral and consulting services, networking opportunities, and a full schedule of year-round, educational seminars and workshops.


 It is through your generous support that we are able to provide service to the nonprofit community.
