Why Regional Satellite Partners?

The West Virginia Nonprofit Association (WVNPA) is sensitive to the regional needs and perspectives of the state’s nonprofits in developing programming and outreach. In this commitment, the WVNPA plans to deliver programming (training, meetings, etc.) on a regional basis throughout the state. To be successful and to prevent the high cost of regional physical presence across the state, regional satellite partners will be selected as local resource sites.

Currently, some regions of the state have Community Foundations and United Ways who assist their local nonprofit community through trainings, consultation, resources, and collaborative efforts. The WVNPA wants to build upon these successful relationships and wants to establish partners in regions where there are none.

Our goal is to improve regional cooperation, incorporate technology, and build regional diversity in our programming. In working towards this goal, the following criteria have been identified for becoming a Regional Satellite Partner. The WVNPA encourages nonprofits within a region to partner with each other to meet the criteria of being a Regional Satellite Partner.

1. Must be a community foundation, United Way organization or other established nonprofit who convenes nonprofits across the community and/or region.

2. Is as a centralized location within one of the nine (9) regions identified in West Virginia.

3. Exhibits capacity, interest and experience in hosting regional training events, support peer-to-peer learning programs, and provide information about regional community events of interest to the membership.

4. Has or can obtain access to appropriate facility space needed for regional trainings, meetings, and events at little or no cost.

5. Can provide technology and/or internet access to presenters and participants.

6. Facilitates collaboration to reduce redundancy and identify a staff member, board member or volunteer to serve as the WVNPA liaison working with the WVNPA’s staff and board.

7. Can host 2-3 regional trainings or meetings a year and can possibly house some hard copy or electronic resources on site.
