501 Commons provides a broad array of management support, technology and capacity building services to meet the needs of nonprofits of all sizes and all subsectors. For ongoing needs, we provide contracted technology, finance and human resources "back-office" support.
501 Commons' mission is to boost the capacity of nonprofit organizations to thrive over the long term and effectively serve the community.
501 Commons was founded in 1989 as Executive Service Corps of Washington. In 2010, we changed our name to 501 Commons, reflecting a changing role and broader range of services. In 2012, we absorbed some of the programs and services of the Alliance for Nonprofits and the technology services of NPower Northwest. Most of our clients are in Washington State but many of our services are available to nonprofits beyond Washington.
501 Commons is a 501(c)(3) tax-deductible, nonprofit, charitable organization and is a member of the Executive Service Corps - United States. By making a donation or volunteering your time to 501 Commons, you are impacting the success of over 1000 organizations. Join us!
