20 Benefits of PANO Membership
Tuesday, January 31 | 1:00 PM – 1:45 PM | Member Benefit Webinar (All PANO Benefits!)

Presented by: Anne Gingerich, Executive Director, PANO, and Faduma Hasson, Membership & Administrative Specialist, PANO

On December 31, we count down the seconds to the new year. One month later, on January 31, join PANO for a countdown of the 20 benefits of PANO membership! Here's a little sneak peak - the top three reasons why nonprofits join PANO are:

#1: Discounted Training

#2: "Ask PANO" Nonprofit Helpdesk

#3: Standards for Excellence Resources


In this 45-minute webinar, PANO’s Executive Director and Membership & Admin Specialist will take a tour through these and 17 other reasons why organizations, individuals, and students join the only statewide association serving all Pennsylvania nonprofits.


Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our members are saying:

  • “We enjoy the opportunity to network with other nonprofits from across the state and pick up on new best practices that are being tried in other agencies. We also value PANO’s ability to keep us abreast of any statutory changes at the state or national level that may impact our operation of a nonprofit.” – Anthony J. Turo, MPA, Executive Director, Ursuline Support Services, an organization accessing PANO’s Standards for Excellence resources
  • "PANO has become my first check-in when we start a new initiative." - New PANO Member since 2022
  • "I literally don't know how I ever survived in the nonprofit field without your resources. We've used PANO's Standards for Excellence and other resources to help develop a number of internal documents including our staff handbook, board handbook, and fundraising dashboard." - League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania

Find out what’s in it for you and make the most of your PANO membership in 2023!
