What is the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network (MNN)?
MNN is the only statewide organization dedicated to uniting and strengthening the entire nonprofit sector through advocacy, public awareness, and capacity-building. MNN currently has 650+ nonprofit member organizations and 130 for-profit affiliate members from across the state.

We also connect nonprofits with our for-profit affiliate members who are masters of their craft and provide nonprofits with goods and services to make their work more effective and efficient.

Why did MNN change the structure of its affiliate membership?
MNN updated its affiliate program to meet the demand for more deliverables and a deeper level of partnership. With this structure, affiliates can choose between tiers of membership; with each tier offering varying levels of promotion, opportunities to partner with MNN, and chances to engage with the nonprofit sector.

This new structure allows for a deeper level of partnership and engagement for those organizations that are interested, while ensuring strong visibility for all MNN affiliates. It reflects the feedback we’ve received from members and is benchmarked against what similar organizations across the country offer.

How much does Affiliate Membership cost?
Affiliate membership ranges from $250-5,000/ year. The amount of deliverables and level of partnership increases with each tier.

Who can be an Affiliate Member?
We welcome any business that provides service or products to Massachusetts nonprofit organizations. The business does not need to be located in Massachusetts. Nonprofit organizations that would like to access these benefits can opt to sign-on as a Standard, Advantage, or Premium member, rather than a nonprofit member.

What if I want to upgrade to Advantage or Premium affiliate membership before my membership is up for renewal?
That’s great! If you update and renew your membership early, your membership will be extended for a year from your current end date, and you’ll be able to access all of the expanded benefits right away.

What’s the deal with the Business Directory?
Our popular online directory is visited by hundreds of nonprofit and business professionals each month. And, as part of our affiliate program, the directory has been significantly upgraded to increase web traffic and make it easier for nonprofits to find the goods and services you offer.

Standard affiliates will be listed in one directory category of their choice. Advantage and Premium affiliates have the option to be listed in multiple categories.In addition, Premium affiliates are the preferred vendor for a single directory category. Therefore, we’ll only be accepting one business per category at the Premium level.
