The portal aims to be a meeting point for international non-profit and third sector leaders, professionals and other interested stakeholders.
Nonprofit.xarxanet.org is a news portal on the third sector and volunteering that has been launched on 4th April. The portal aims to be a meeting point for international non-profit and third sector leaders, professionals and other interested stakeholders and has a dual objective:
- Reflect and generate opinion and discussions on the third sector and volunteering.
- Being a space to exchange and disseminate good practices and the more relevant experiences developed by Catalan non-profit organisations and others from around the world.
A monthly newsletter will include the latest news, interviews and opinions published on the portal. It is first coming out on May and subscriptions are already open.
The Twitter account @nonprofit_cat will help to keep updated on the latest news on third sector and volunteering and give a voice to the sector stakeholders.
Nonprofit is a project that arises from xarxanet.org, a portal in Catalan language on the third sector and volunteering that was promoted by the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Families of the Government of Catalonia and is managed by Catalan non-profit organisations themselves.
Created in 2003, xarxanet.org aims at strengthening these non-profit organisations and improving the task of volunteering so as to boost a sector that is key to social transformation; it achieves this through disseminating the activities of Catalan non-profit organisations, fostering discussions on areas of interest to the sector and providing assistance to organisations so they can improve their functioning.
