YNPN Greater Bflo is made up of you: Young nonprofit professionals who see the value in being intentional about our professional development, and in building a peer support network to help you be more effective change-makers for the good of our communities.


YNPN Greater Bflo is led by a dedicated voluntary board of local for-profit and non-profit professionals.

National Movement

The very first Young Nonprofit Professionals Network (YNPN) chapter was founded in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1997 by a small group of young nonprofit professionals. Today the YNPN network serves more than 50,000 members and has chapters in over 40 cities. In 2018, YNPN Greater Bflo became an affiliate of YNPN National and we continue to be apart of the national movement to activate emerging leaders and build a diverse and powerful social sector.


YNPN Greater Buffalo strengthens the nonprofit community by serving as an inclusive and innovative resource for networking and growth to empower young professionals.


YNPN Greater Buffalo envisions a network of engaged professionals striving for excellence in knowledgeable and effective service to the community.
