History

The Nonprofit Village is Montgomery County’s first and only multi-tenant nonprofit center. We strengthen the reach and effectiveness of nonprofit organizations by providing affordable office space, opportunities for collaboration, capacity-building, and a variety of office services. The benefits and services provided to tenant members help them reduce essential operating and administrative costs, allowing these important groups to focus more keenly on their mission of providing vital services to our community.

 

Conceptualized as an initiative of the Community Foundation for Montgomery County in 2002, and incorporated in 2006, both local and statewide legislators, and philanthropic organizations supported the Nonprofit Village.

 

As we began to explore possible rental spaces throughout the county, the focus was to provide space to be used for nonprofit administration and training programs offered by our members.

 

Our first Village members were Pain Connection and CASSA, which were soon followed by more small and emerging nonprofits seeking affordable and attractive space. Nonprofit Village now serves 28 nonprofits.
