Renton Area Nonprofits Unite (RANU)
Working together to make us better. Working together to make Renton better.
Our Goals and Objectives
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.
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.
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.
