MISSION – The mission of the NPBC is to promote the positive economic impact of nonprofits; strengthen their capacity in areas of leadership, fundraising, board development, staff development, & compliance; and provide collaboration and philanthropic education.


ADMINISTRATION – The NPBC s governed by a chair and steering committee made up of 10 voting members representing various nonprofit focus areas. Several of the voting members are original founding steering committee members. The members also serve as chairs of subcommittees including: membership, annual workshop, Youth Philanthropy in Action and more.


MEETINGS – The NPBC holds monthly professional development meetings the 3rd Tuesday of every month on a variety of topics relevant to nonprofit organizations. Local nonprofit CEO’s are invited to attend quarterly luncheons where they can share best practices and network.

Upcoming Nonprofit Events
In 2009, two local non-profit leaders determined they wanted to learn more about each other’s organizations, and an idea was birthed. They presented their vision to unite and strengthen community nonprofits to the Ocala Chamber of Commerce (now known as the Ocala/Marion County Chamber & Economic Partnership – CEP), and the dream became reality. In 2016, the CEP offered the opportunity to the Community Foundation to take over operations of the NPBC. Since that time, membership has grown to more than 100 non-profit partners and continues to increase.

During her three year battle, Michelle was always thinking of others and reminding them to get their mammograms. To continue Michelle’s legacy, Joey Wiesbaum RN, of Dunnellon, Florida, had a clever idea for a nonprofit—Michelle-O-Gram. With the approval of Michelle's husband and family, we began collecting donations, hosting fundraisers and getting the word out. We were also able to partner with local radiology and imaging centers, allowing us to help women without insurance, or in financial crisis, to obtain mammography testing.
