For CEOs, by CEOs
The Mission of the Chamber of Nonprofit Health and Human Services Agencies in Palm Beach County is to provide a forum to learn from trusted colleagues and an opportunity to provide advocacy for those we serve.
Why the Nonprofit Chamber?
The Chamber of Nonprofit Health & Human Services Agencies in Palm Beach County provides the only professional organization just for health and human services nonprofits in Palm Beach County. It provides a setting for nonprofits to gather, discuss and resolve common issues, develop collaborative relationships, and promote the economic and social value of nonprofits in Palm Beach County. We serve to develop and articulate a unified voice for the nonprofit health and human services network.
The Chamber membership have found funding collaborators through this organization; many have discovered the benefits of sharing resources, and others have learned strategies for grant-writing, succession planning, human resource development and many other valuable tools for enhancing their own missions.
Meetings include discussions of issues introduced by the membership, presentations by local experts on topics of interest to nonprofit leadership, and an all-important period of time is set aside for nonprofits to share information through networking.
The Chamber’s board is grateful to Allegany Franciscan Ministries for their financial support of the Chamber and their belief in our mission and goals.

What is the Nonprofit Chamber of Palm Beach County?
Chief Executive Officers of a broad cross section of Palm Beach County’s most respected health and human services organizations have come together to collaborate, learn, network, collectively advocate, and stay ahead of the curve in rapidly changing times. We focus on improving the “business” of nonprofit work and changing the way the community views non-profit organizations.
The Chamber was the brainchild of nonprofit leaders more than a decade ago when they recognized they and their peers had no forum to meet, learn about and from each other and form collaborations and alliances.
