The mission of Greater Pittsburgh Nonprofit Partnership (GPNP), formed by The Forbes Funds and regional nonprofit leadership, is to engage and connect nonprofits — across missions — to build partnerships that strengthen the effectiveness and sustainability of services provided to the community. To further the goals of strengthening the nonprofit sector of southwestern Pennsylvania, this coalition of more than 450 nonprofit organizations convenes at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in October for its biennial summit — enabling organizations from various realms to band together to promote social progress and change. Now in its ninth year, the event estimates 2,000 nonprofit executives, business leaders, entrepreneurs, foundations and public officials to be in attendance.
As a finalist for the inaugural UpPrize social innovation challenge, fivestar*’s President and Cofounder Lou Camerlengo accepted the Forbes Funds invitation to participate in the Summit 2017 showcase, bringing insights into how technology innovations can help nonprofits save precious time and resources. fivestar*’s GoodWorks – an intake solution that provides nonprofit organizations with a personalized system for client triage, intake and referral – earned a finalist standing position at BNYMellon UpPrize competition, and is a featured success story for the GPNP Summit as the application continues to demonstrate measurable benefits around expanding service access and improving efficiencies for its early adopters.
