The Nonprofit Partnership's Comedy Campaign

To celebrate National Humor Month, The Nonprofit Partnership initiated a Comedy Campaign throughout April 2019. 

Nonprofit professionals often work very hard and in tough fields – if anyone deserves (ahem, *needs*) a laugh, it’s our nonprofit friends! 

Submissions were taken during the month of April. Feeling funny beyond April? That's what we like to hear! There won't be a prize, but we'd happy to see what you have to offer. Please email your submission to NPP’s Ellen Kehl at

Criteria includes:

  • Content must be rated PG
  • If using a GIF link or an image, please share the link or image within the email so that we can share on our social networks (please note - GIF files or images that are too small will not be shared)
  • Content must be related to the nonprofit field
