Over the past several years, The Communications Network has grown to be the premiere national nonprofit association for promoting the strategic use of communications in philanthropy.
With the support of our members and donors, we bring unique programs, new resources and create important networking opportunities across the field of philanthropy and throughout the nonprofit sector. In turn, our members provide leadership to the field through committee service, mentorship and project leadership.
