Renton Area Nonprofits Unite (RANU)

Working together to make us better. Working together to make Renton better.

Our Mission

We exist to bring together the diverse nonprofits, social organizations, and businesses serving the greater Renton community.  Together, we will become more effective through increased collaboration, learning, and sharing of resources.

Our Goals and Objectives

  1. Collaboration: Relationship is key. We will continually gain a better understanding of each other’s mission and the people we serve – who is doing what with whom.  Strategic partnerships will form across areas of common focus (youth, housing, education, the environment, arts and culture, etc.), as well as with local businesses, churches, and government.  This will occur through monthly meetings and planned networking events.
  2. Shared Learning: Marketing, fundraising, board development, volunteer recruitment, and management.  These are things that affect us all, so why not learn together?  This will be accomplished through training at monthly meetings and planned workshops.  Activities are open to staff of all levels, board members, and volunteers.
  3. Shared Resources: We will find ways to put our collective resources to even better use.  These resources could include knowledge, time, people, space, technology, and money.
