A Unified Sector is a Stronger Sector

When determining the “value” of joining AAN we encourage you to look beyond the training, networking and savings opportunities that will help you and/or your organization raise more money.


It is your annual dues that fuel AAN, and allow us to be your advocate. Your investment enables us to fund research that further validates your work and the work of the sector.  They help provide training opportunities and workshops recommended by leaders of Alabama’s most respected foundations and corporations, who believe it’s absolutely critical for nonprofit professionals to continue growing their knowledge and skills in this ever changing economic climate. 


As the voice for Alabama’s nonprofit sector, we believe the most important reason you should join AAN is that it will help further strengthen our efforts to advocate on behalf of your organization and the many other nonprofits that daily make a profound difference in communities throughout Alabama. Strength comes in numbers, and as a member of AAN you help provide the leverage our collective body of nonprofits needs to garner the listening ears of corporate, foundation and government leaders on a local, state and national level.
