The vast majority of HAF grants are to local nonprofits. We also support them to be the best organizations they can be.
The Northern California Association of Nonprofits (NorCAN) provides professional development opportunities for organizations stretched thin with limited staff and capacity. HAF and the McLean Foundation created NorCAN in 2004 to offer low-cost workshops, roundtables, networking events, and more for nonprofit professionals to learn from trainers and from each other. A steering committee helps prioritize NorCAN offerings.
