Welcome to the Nonprofit Alliance of Monterey County

Our mission is to increase the capacity and collective power of the nonprofit industry for the benefit of all people in Monterey County.

What is NAMC?

Nonprofit Alliance of Monterey County (NAMC) is an unincorporated membership organization governed by Core Leadership, a 10 to 15-member group elected annually and representing the range of key actors in the nonprofit industry. NAMC strives to develop and implement programs that encourage its members to work collaboratively and support one another, that improve the internal operations and structures of nonprofit organizations, and that speak to the larger community about the critical role of the nonprofit industry in society.

The 2014 Nonprofit Impact study identified a number of social, economic, political, environmental and legal trends. NAMC has presented a series of brown bag lunch meetings where some of the key trends were discussed. So far,  sessions have focused on demographic trends, with presenters Jesse Herrera and Dr. Ignacio Navarro, and technology trends, with presenters Luis Alvarez of Alvarez Technology Group and Jacob Martinez of Digital Nest.

See Dr. Ignacio's presentation on demographic trends here.
