Coming Together for Missoula
Formed in 2019, the Missoula Nonprofit Center (MNC) is the training, networking, and information sharing hub for Missoula area nonprofits. As the updated and modernized combination of the Missoula Nonprofit Network (MNN) and Volunteer Missoula, MNC hopes to facilitate growth and encourage the success of our community’s valued nonprofits and volunteers.
MNN was started in 2005 as an effort to strengthen the nonprofit sector by holding joint trainings, sharing best practices and collaborating on grant resources.
Volunteer Missoula was born in 2012 as a result of collaboration between 13 distinct nonprofits, businesses, and groups with the goal of helping promote volunteerism as a viable solution to meeting gaps in services in our community. The Volunteer Missoula website facilitates local nonprofits to connect with eager volunteers through easy-to-use online search and sign-up features.
As a combination of these two entities, the Missoula Nonprofit Center brings together a suite of services, tools, and educational opportunities to help promote and support Missoula’s nonprofits. MNC is under the fiscal sponsorship of United Way of Missoula County and run by a coordinator and an advisory board.
