The National Network

The YNPN National Movement

YNPN National began in 1997 as a small gathering of young nonprofit professionals in San Francisco. It has grown into a nationwide grassroots movement with over 15,000 members in numerous chapters across the country. YNPN is committed to providing the investment needed to help young nonprofit professionals be successful in the nonprofit sector.

In order to better provide support and resources for local networks, YNPN National incorporated as an independent, national 501(c)(3) nonprofit in 2004. The national body is governed by a board of directors, comprised of representatives from YNPN chapters and other leaders committed to making the nonprofit sector a sustainable, vibrant and viable place to work.
