Celebrate Nonprofits Week:

The first Celebrate Nonprofits Week took place from June 22nd through June 26th of 2020 - thanks to all who joined us in the celebration! 

A little more about the Week...

Celebrate Nonprofits Week is a week-long celebration of nonprofit organizations: the deeply important work they do, the essential role they play in our lives, and the dedicated staff that work diligently to carry out their missions.

The purpose of Celebrate Nonprofits Week is to increase public awareness of the contributions our nonprofits make to our communities—and to provide an opportunity for those organizations to recognize and celebrate their employees. 

As proclaimed by Erie County Executive Kathy Dahlkemper and Mayor Joe Schember (June 22, 2020) the fourth week of June is now known as Celebrate Nonprofits Week - check out the main website at and mark your calendar for 2021: June 21st through June 25th!

The Nonprofit Partnership's offices at The Susan Hirt Hagen Center for Transformational Philanthropy are open Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM.
