Ways to give to NPN
We are thrilled celebrate 33 years as a Chicago non-profit community with two major milestones: 1) major Discussion Forum website improvements and 2) hiring of a new South Side Programming & Community Outreach Manager.  Milestones that we accomplished because of the support of our members, sponsors, advertisers, and last but not least - our donors!
