Since 2001, YNPN Chicago has provided resources to and hosted events for thousands of young professionals involved in the greater Chicago nonprofit community. Your support of this community is invaluable.


YNPN Chicago provides support, training, and resources to thousands of individuals in the greater Chicago nonprofit community. Even as a volunteer-run organization, we have ongoing expenses which allow us provide high quality programs and services. We strive to offer low-cost and free events to members and the general public, and we need your support.

For over 15 years, we've consistently offered educational and professional development programs, as well as social and networking events. Today, we deliver an average of 30 events each year and a weekly newsletter with over 6,000 newsletter subscribers. 

As YNPN Chicago continues to develop as the premier resource for young nonprofit professionals, please consider making a donation to support our important work. Your donation will be instrumental as we continue to impact the nonprofit sector and its future leaders. From all of us at YNPN Chicago, thank you for considering an investment in our mission!
