Welcome to ONE | Organization for Nonprofit Executives
ONE is a professional membership association dedicated exclusively to meeting the unique needs of nonprofit chief professional officers in Arizona, primarily in Maricopa County. ONE offers multi-level forums to discuss and learn about the many facets of nonprofit leadership. The format provides intimate networking and peer-to-peer support opportunities with other leaders and experts in the nonprofit industry in a welcoming, supportive and collegial environment.
ONE was founded in 1998 as a support network formed as part of the Council of United Way Agency Executives and later joined by members of the Association of Nonprofit Executive Directors of Arizona. Over the past 20 years, ONE developed into its current role as an invaluable resource for nonprofit community leaders providing opportunities to learn from peers and experts in related fields.
Today, ONE has a membership of over 100 agency executives who gather regularly for a monthly speaker series, informal networking sessions and other special events. ONE’s Nonprofit Leader Day is in its 17thyear and is the only event of its kind in Maricopa County created to celebrate the work of nonprofit leaders in our community. The event recognizes excellence in nonprofit leadership through its Leader of Distinction Award, Organizational Accomplishment, Innovation and Community Partnership Awards.
ONE is a 501(c)3 nonprofit association lead by an Executive Director and a Board of Directors made up of chief professional officers who are either individual members or agency members of ONE. The all-volunteer Board of Directors works to establish excellence in governance, quality programming, and financial sustainability for the ONE organization and for its membership.
The vision for the ONE Board is to have a positive and lasting impact on the nonprofit sector by ensuring sustainability and relevance of ONE, its mission and its members
