What is DCNP?

The DeKalb County Nonprofit Partnership (DCNP) exists to help strengthen nonprofit organizations in DeKalb County. Stronger organizations that are effective, well-run, resilient, efficient, and sustainable can enhance the quality of life in DeKalb County – which is our ultimate purpose!

DCNP is a membership-based program of the DeKalb County Community Foundation. We offer members a wide-variety of benefits, such as training, access to resources, networking, and many different programs such as Give DeKalb County.


Mission & Leadership

Mission Statement: The DeKalb County Nonprofit Partnership strengthens the nonprofit sector through leadership, professional development, and collaboration.

DCNP is advised by a Steering Committee that represents our members. The Steering Committee and various sub-committees provide leadership, input, and they help to set our strategic direction. DCNP is staffed by a Director and receives part-time assistance from the Community Foundation’s Grants and Community Initiatives Manager.
