Dear PAACE members,

One of the many benefits of being a PAACE member is access to a 25% discount to PANO (the Pennsylvania Association of Nonprofit Organizations). PANO is a statewide membership organization supporting the thousands of nonprofits that serve millions of people in the Commonwealth. While other associations cater to specific nonprofit trades, PANO is the only membership organization that supports Pennsylvania’s nonprofit sector as a collective whole. PANO supports nonprofits through training, best practices, consultation and discount programs and amplifies their impact through research, public policy initiatives and advocacy. PANO is accredited by the Standards for Excellence Institute, signifying that the organization practices the highest level of ethics, accountability and transparency.

To obtain the 25% discount code, please email the PAACE Coordinator, Liz Geariety, at

You will need to complete this PANO Company Membership Application. After submitting the form, you will be brought to a secure payment page where you will enter the discount code. This discount is only applicable for brand new and renewing PANO members. So, for example, if your organization is already in an active membership term, you can only apply this discount at the time of your next renewal. In other words, the discount cannot be applied retroactively.

Also, PANO does have scholarships available for any organizations located in Bucks, Lehigh, or Northampton counties to attend PANO trainings. Here is that information:

Scholarship Opportunity – Thanks to the generous support of The Provident Bank Foundation, nonprofit professionals in Bucks, Lehigh, and/or Northampton Counties can attend many of PANO’s upcoming programs FREE of charge! You do not need to be a PANO member to take advantage of these scholarship dollars but please note that not all programs are eligible. Check out our upcoming trainings here and contact Christina at for details!

Please contact Liz Geariety, PAACE Coordinator, with any follow up questions.
