PANO Nonprofit Member Testimonial

"After several decades in the private sector, PANO member Sharon started a nonprofit to help victims of human trafficking. Driven by her passion, she built a team that collectively addresses the complex needs of those who have been preyed upon. But running a nonprofit within the unique culture of the industry was unfamiliar to her. Sharon says that PANO gave her and her team the language, knowledge, and cultural insights they needed in order to thrive in the nonprofit space."

I am currently in the process of forming my nonprofit, can I join as a nonprofit member?

Yes, you can join as a nonprofit member while you are in the formation process. Note: PANO does not help with filing paperwork but can provide help with day-to-day nonprofit questions, access to many free Standards for Excellence Resources, sample policies, procedures, and templates, discounted trainings, and more.

What is PANO's Dissolution Policy?

PANO has a nondiscrimination grievance policy concerning membership and program attendance; however PANO does have a means of removing disruptive groups from this participation. For example, if a group regularly commandeers training programs to discuss an unrelated issue instead of the focus of the program, then the PANO board can prohibit future participation and/or discontinue the membership.

PANO Individual Member Testimonial

"I am very committed to PANO and all the really great work that is done by your organization. I have been with PANO for many years having become acquainted with your work in my last nonprofit job. In fact, when I went independent, the first task on my list was to become a PANO member. I did just that and have been able to give incredible services to the nonprofits on my client list. I am grateful to have PANO as a resource that enhances my ability to serve my clients."
