Lasting, measurable change in our community is possible with connection and collaboration. Pillar Nonprofit Network members are nonprofit organizations, businesses, and individuals from across London and the surrounding area, all invested in creating positive community impact together.
- Have their head office, conduct business or reside in London and the surrounding area;
- Range from small start-ups to larger, more established nonprofit organizations and businesses, to individuals committed to our community; and
- Represent a variety of demographics and causes.
- Individual Members support Pillar's work and vision and are interested in professional development, networking and consulting opportunities.
- Business Members are businesses and for-profit social enterprises that are invested in positive community impact.
- Nonprofit Organization Members are registered charities and nonprofit organizations (incorporated or unincorporated)with a genuine interest in furthering Pillar's objectives, that want to increase their visibility and credibility.
Together, Pillar members form a network of like-minded individuals, committed to increasing their visibility, credibility, capacity, professionalism and impact. Their dedication strengthens the effectiveness of the sector as a whole and positions the nonprofit sector alongside government and businesses in the pursuit of postive community change.
Without a strong, stable and reliable public sector, we cannot be a community. Without an innovative, responsive and vibrant private sector, we cannot be a community. Without a caring, creative and compassionate voluntary sector, we cannot be a community. Without any of these three pillars, the community collapses. When these three pillars work in collaboration, harmony and mutual respect, the sky will be the limit.
