NPC helps to build the capacity of emergent nonprofits in the State of Delaware. We assist managers to design and complete short-term projects that they would otherwise not have the time or resources to do on their own. NPC provides the expertise and person-power that many small nonprofits are simply unable to afford.
NPC solicits project proposals from area nonprofits. Members review the proposals and then decide if they are a good match for the current skill-set of the group. If the project seems appropriate, a representative from NPC meets with the nonprofit manager to further define the need and PCN’s ability to help. If NPC accepts the project, a team is assigned to it and a work plan is developed. The entire NPC membership meets on a bi-weekly basis. At these meetings members working on different projects will report on the progress they are making and solicit advice from other members regarding the challenges they are encountering. The status of a project as either active, inactive or completed is determined by the assigned team in consultation with the entire group. Once a project is completed the appropriate organizational contact is asked to complete a project evaluation. These evaluations are reviewed by the entire membership.
I've been a member of this group for about 5 years. I really enjoy the people. They are very friendly, very knowledgeable about the local nonprofit community and are committed to sharing their skills with struggling nonprofits. You don't have to have extraordinary skills to be a member of the group. Just be interested in learning new things and want to be helpful. Come and check us out for yourself. You don't have to make a commitment beyond that. Hope to see you.
