Identifies some steps that to strengthen the community-building role of nonprofit organizations.
To do so, it outlines why “community” remains so important in our modern world; spells out the special strengths nonprofit organizations bring to the task of building community; identifies the obstacles that may be keeping nonprofit organizations from performing this role as effectively as they might; and suggests what might be done to take greater advantage of the nonprofit sector’s community-building capabilities. The statement was developed by participants in the 12th annual conference of the Johns Hopkins International Fellows in Philanthropy program held in Sydney, Australia in July 2000.
