Survey on Back-Office Needs

The Nonprofit Village is expanding its reach and programs to ensure more nonprofits can work effectively and efficiently. As we work on a plan for a more robust home for nonprofit organizations to be incubated, housed, grow, learn and collaborate, the team is working on efforts to provide more flexible space options for nonprofits and their partners.

We envision a space where nonprofits, certain corporations, consultants, government, and foundations co-locate to provide a broader range of services and more collaborative opportunities. With a new work environment, we anticipate that area nonprofits will have the resources and expertise needed to serve our community. Our focus is on building community; therefore, we are designing options that include co-working space, offices, expanded virtual services, small event space and training space.

Please complete this preliminary survey of your anticipated needs, regardless of whether you share space with Nonprofit Village. Your responses will help us build more effective back-office services that can serve nonprofits throughout the area with shared services.
