about us

The Northern California Association of Nonprofits (NorCAN) is a regional network of organizations and leaders connected in our dedication to strengthening our communities.

NorCAN was established in 1999 to serve the rural nonprofit sector in Humboldt, Del Norte and Trinity Counties. NorCAN exists to connect organizations doing good work here, so that they don’t have to operate in isolation, as we know that organizations sharing information, expertise, and resources can be more effective and efficient in their work. NorCAN helps those organizations make deeper impacts through trainings, professional development, networking opportunities and a biennial conference.

Members are able to tap into resources that help their boards become more effective, their staff teams stronger, and their organizations more strategic and technologically savvy.

NorCAN is located at Humboldt Area Foundation in Bayside, California.
