Strengthening community nonprofit organizations

This program is designed to aid the small nonprofit organizations in Missouri that are in many ways the backbone of civic life in our communities -- neighborhood organizations, community betterment groups, faith-based organizations, auxiliary clubs and educational associations. Their work often defines what is unique about the places we live, and their efforts to address some of the most difficult community issues often differentiates a good place to live from a not-so-good place to live.

The support these organizations need varies widely from place to place, group to group and situation to situation. The resources provided here are designed to help a group do a self-assessment and locate appropriate assistance. In addition, University of Missouri Extension community development faculty are located throughout the state to provide assist organizations as they address their organizational needs.
