The purpose of the West Georgia Nonprofit Network (WGNPN) is to strengthen the nonprofit
community in Carroll, Coweta, Haralson, and Heard Counties through professional networking,
leadership development, and information sharing.
UWG's Office of Public Service and Outreach houses the administrative functions of
the WGNPN, with the initial focus on three primary activities:
- creating and maintaining a database of WGNPN organizations,
- managing a listserve where representatives of WGNPN organizations can communicate
with each other, and
- organizing opportunities for development and networking for the member organizations.
"The West Georgia Nonprofit Network has been a tremendous help to Keep Carroll Beautiful.
The WGNPN has assisted with various staff development and networking opportunities,
kept us updated on various sources of funding available to nonprofits and provided
the support necessary to review and update our organizational policies in preparation
for our application for the National Standards for Excellence certification. The WGNPN
has, and continues to be, a valuable resource for the nonprofit organizations in the
West Georgia region."
