The Nonprofit Village is the DC region’s only incubator and shared space for nonprofit organizations. Through our programs, and with our partners, the Village helps nonprofits strengthen their effectiveness by providing shared space, essential back-office services, and collaborative opportunities.
Since 2008, the Nonprofit Village has incubated more than 45 nonprofit organizations. Graduates have increased their ability to remain sustainable, grow their staff and budgets, and increase the number of citizens served by building capacity and creating collaborations.
The Nonprofit Village provides organizational development training and coaching through its incubation program for start-up and emerging nonprofit organizations. More than 300 nonprofits also take advantage of public training programs offered with our partner organizations.
Small and/or new nonprofits in the DC Metro area.
