Q & A

Salem area nonprofit resources?

Is there a Salem area or Mid-Willamette Valley nonprofit info and networking hub like CNRG? How about networking groups or meetings?

I'm working on a start-up and looking for an easier way to learn about who is already out there for research and possible synergistic opportunities. Also wanting to share these resources with others.

Thanks. J Matson [email protected]
