Alyssa Turcsak, CNP
Outreach Coordinator and Consultant Support Specialist

It is a tremendous honor to be joining this thoughtful and brilliant team at Nonprofit Network. I am enthusiastic about my newly created role as the Outreach Coordinator and Consultant Support Specialist. My primary goal is to serve as a bridge for nonprofit members (current and prospective) and the resources Nonprofit Network is able to offer as a way to support the impassioned work you do every single day in your cherished communities.

I was introduced to the nonprofit sector after a battle with childhood cancer. Having had the opportunity to be treated at a nonprofit children’s hospital, attend a nonprofit summer camp for children with life threatening illnesses, and to participate in a Make-A-Wish trip demonstrated to me that there are people in the world who have hearts that are much too large to be contained in their body. The kindness and empathy shown to me as a young child inspired my desire to be one of the people who transforms the world through love.

Holding a degree in Nonprofit Management from the University of Northern Iowa with a credential of Certified Nonprofit Professional (CNP) awarded by Nonprofit Leadership Alliance, I have been trained in 10 core competencies that support leaders in the social sector. While my previous experiences were centered in fundraising, my passion lies in building meaningful relationships and serving as a connector.

My immediate past role allowed me the opportunity to assist in building nonprofit structure, including completion of the application of the 501c3 1023 Form. It was in this capacity that I discovered the wealth of knowledge that Nonprofit Network offers. After signing up for their newsletter and attending workshops, I was delighted to see an opportunity to join this crew and to further the mission of strengthening nonprofit governance and management.

I’ll be focused on the areas of Adrian, Battle Creek, Hillsdale, Jackson, and Lansing but would love to meet with you no matter where you are. I truly value meeting you, where you are at. If you are considering becoming a member or want to understand how to better utilize your membership, I am your person! As I’m continuing to learn and dive into the many resources shared among the Nonprofit Network staff of expert consultants, I will also provide insight on how you might utilize their expertise to do a deeper dive into whatever your organization needs.

I can’t wait to meet more of you in the coming weeks. Please know I’m always up for getting together for a coffee or a meal. My metaphorical door is always open!
