We help nonprofits help their communities. There are thousands of nonprofits in our area – each trying to make a difference on their own. We bring them together so that each member can benefit from our collective strength. 

Nonprofit Association of the Midlands (NAM) is the only membership organization in the state dedicated exclusively to working with nonprofits in the Midlands. By connecting organizations with information, education, advocacy and collaboration, we help members focus their energy on the people and communities they serve. 

Our Mission

We strengthen the collective voice, leadership, and capacity of nonprofit organizations to enrich the quality of community life throughout Nebraska and Western Iowa. To achieve this mission for our growing base of nonprofit organizations, NAM is committed to the following goals:

  • Enhance public recognition of the importance and role of the nonprofit sector to the people of Nebraska.
  • Provide access to high quality assistance and information on effective nonprofit management and practices.
  • Advocate on issues that affect the capacity of all nonprofits to address their communities’ needs.
  • Foster communication and cooperation among nonprofits.
