It's More than a Treasure Hunt!   

Learning how to Partner
with Grantmakers

Thursday, May 14, 2015
9:30am - Noon

Bankhead Theater
Downtown Livermore 
Be sure to save the date for our special monthly meeting in May .

TVNPA presents an in-depth panel discussion featuring grantmakers, corporate charity representatives and experts in the world of non-profit organization development.

Featuring two special panel sessions presented by corporate and local foundations, these discussions will shine the light
both on "giving criteria" and "grantmaker expectations." The presentations will be held inside the theater at the Bankhead. 

Heads-up! This meeting starts earlier than our regular monthly meetings to accommodate a longer and more in-depth program. Stay tuned for event updates and registration info in upcoming newsletters!

Spread the word!
Do you know someone who is involved with nonprofit organizations who would like to hear about TVNPA programs and events?

We invite non-profit organization volunteers, staff members, board directors and members of the community at large to participate!

Together, we're better!

April and May Monthly Meetings Held at Bankhead Theater
TVNPA does a hop, skip and a jump across the way to the Bankhead Theater in April and May
The Tri-Valley Nonprofit Alliance turned one year old this March and with a whole year now under our belt, we find ourselves addressing the welcome challenge of how to accommodate a larger crowd of participants at our popular monthly meetings.

We are delighted to partner with the Bankhead Theater to hold our April and May meetings in this downtown Livermore treasure. All of us at TVNPA extend our gratitude to the Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center for their ongoing generosity and for going the extra mile to support our expanding group of participating organizations.

We would also like to thank the entire staff at Fannie and John Hertz Foundation for their commitment to supporting TVNPA and for the use of their board room over the last year. Kudos to all!

  We'll see you at the Bankhead Theater, Thursday, April 9!

TVNPA's volunteers on the communications team have been busy behind the scenes putting together a new website to serve Tri-Valley nonprofit organizations.

Though still a work in progress (aren't all websites always a work in progress?), we think you'll find a lot more information about TVNPA programs on our newest site to date. We are also working towards making a more user-friendly event registration process, so stay tuned.

We would especially like to thank Paula Campbell and Edward Young for their tremendous efforts to bring TVNPA up to speed on the internet.

Tri-Valley Nonprofit Alliance
  Partnership | Collaboration | Community

The mission of the Tri-Valley Nonprofit Alliance is to provide nonprofit organizations with opportunities to meet, collaborate and share resources, strengthening each other as they work to raise community awareness and strive to achieve their missions.

As TVNPA moves into its second year, we are focusing on "Strengthening our Core in 2015" as we explore core areas of support in marketing and advertising, fundraising and capacity development, programs and impact, and much more.  
The Tri-Valley Nonprofit Alliance is a start-up nonprofit organization based in Livermore, California. We support nonprofit organizations in the Tri-Valley and San Francisco Bay Area. Our philosophy is simple: together, we're better. Start-up funding is always appreciated; however, we are currently working towards applying for official nonprofit status with the IRS. Please consult a licensed tax advisor regarding charitable giving to TVNPA.

To make a contribution or for more information about the organization, we welcome you to contact Co-Founders
Kathy Young and Mony Nop , or visit our website to learn more about the TVNPA.
