About Us...


To create a networking education environment to exchange information and to heighten awareness of nonprofit organizations in the community.


Organized in 1992, the Association of Nonprofit Executives (ANPE), is an informal organization where members can network and promote member organizations and services.

Meetings are held the first week of the month on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday, and cover a wide variety of topics, including grant applications, working with foundations, nonprofit postal regulations, financial reporting requirements, direct mail, taxes, IRS guidelines, fundraising, board development, and much more.


  • Provide a forum where executives can obtain information related to grants, tax tips, planned giving, legislation, fundraising, marketing strategies, etc.
  • Develop a network whereby executives can quickly contact one another about various topics related to nonprofit organizations.
  • Promote an open exchange of information between executives of various nonprofit organizations.
  • Provide a place where in-service programs can be presented to meet the varied needs of the membership.
  • Gain in-depth knowledge of other nonprofit organizations, their missions, fund-raising activities, staff, etc.
  • Promote the leadership abilities of the executives of the Association.


"ANPE has provided me with easy access to my nonprofit peers.  Nonprofit executives all wrestle with the same issues such as money, volunteers, staff, events and boards of directors.  It is great when one can confidently turn to a peer for advice, input, or wisdom.  ANPE is an excellent way to meet other nonprofit execs in a casual, noncompetitive and mutually helpful venue."

"Being a member of ANPE has provided me with an opportunity to meet and visit with hundreds of people serving nonprofit organizations in the Lincoln area while attending meetings at interesting venues throughout the city.  It is a wonderful resource for anyone who wants to learn more about our community.

"The Association of Nonprofit Executives provides an avenue for directors of nonprofit organizations to learn to know one another, share information and ideas, and to value the contributions of nonprofit agencies."
