The Coalition for Nonprofit Equity

The Coalition for Nonprofit Equity is a collective of more than 1,000 DC community-based nonprofit organizations. Members of the Coalition share a common goal- ensuring all DC residents have access to the vital community-based services and supports they need to not only survive, but thrive.

Thank you to Lois & Richard England Family Foundation, Prince Charitable Trust, Oakpoint Foundation, and the Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation who provided funding to support the work of the Coalition.
