Upcoming NPW Affinity Groups


NPW is appreciative of all our program sponsors - learn about them HERE.



The Southern Westchester NPW Nonprofit Meet Up was amazing on Thursday, May 30th! NPW member nonprofits got to meet new colleagues, connect with others, and find meaningful opportunities to collaborate.

As one partner stated, “I love networking events, but this was an amazing, intimate opportunity with immediate results. It was so inspiring to be reminded of all the incredible services in our community and find ways to partner to meet the needs of our residents.”

Nonprofit Members - we hope you will join us on June 5th at 2:00 PM at the YWCA of White Plains & Central Westchester - roundtable introductions from about 2:30 - 3:15 PM and/or send your team members! We love to see new faces. Register HERE - it’s free!

Thank you to Michelle A. Nicholas, NPW Board Member and Founder & CEO of The NICO Consulting Inc., for also facilitating this group. Learn more about Peer to Peer here.
