NpDP - Lending a Hand to Nonprofits - Flathead Nonprofit Development Partnership marks 10 years in the valley

May 5, 2013View for printing

It all started in a parking lot. That's how Flathead Nonprofit Development Partnership founder Lex Blood starts the story of how he first organized Montana's largest nonprofit training group a decade ago.

Today, NpDP has helped more than 250 nonprofit organizations in Northwest Montana, through training seminars and networking events. There are more than 400 nonprofits in the Flathead Valley, 100 of which are churches. Coordinator Chany Ockert says her job is vital because, in the last three years, more than 2,000 nonprofits have lost their tax-exempt status in Montana. The numbers are even more staggering at the national level.
