Working Together for
Our Community

Nonprofits do vital work within communities, but too often, these organizations struggle to find and retain funding, support, volunteers, and public awareness. Building on the idea that there is strength in numbers, the City of Roswell’s Grants Division has established the Nonprofit Partnership Program (NPP). NPP helps organizations providing services in Roswell to address these challenges with the City’s help.

Fifteen nonprofits have already joined the NPP, which facilitates collaborations and provides support to expand each organization’s capacity to serve Roswell residents.

A major 2017 accomplishment was the award of an AmeriCorps planning grant, through the City, to partner with the YMCA (Branch: Ed Isakson/Alpharetta) and STAR House Foundation to provide tutoring assistance, STEAM training, and health and wellness/life-skills activities in eight Roswell after-school programs.

Organizations participating in NPP are able to receive:
• Training, networking opportunities, and community updates through City-sponsored forums, seminars, and emails
• Prospect research and guidance on the development of grants
• Marketing support to garner the time, talent, and treasure of those interested in engaging with the organization
• A formal City partnership to expand funding opportunities and strengthen grant proposals
