Tallahassee/Big Bend Region

More than 800 nonprofit organizations call Tallahassee home, and this does not include trade associations or faith based organizations.  The economic impact of the nonprofit community within the Tallahassee/Big Bend Region is profound.  Today’s communities need the services provided by nonprofit organizations, and SNAP supports the capital region’s nonprofit organizations through free training opportunities and resources for nonprofit executives, staff and volunteers. Together, we can help build stronger communities.
