Bham Now’s Free Nonprofit guides will include the following:

  • How to support the organization financially
  • Ways to donate materials and items
  • Volunteer opportunities
  • Attend and support future events (which may be virtual right now)

Why Are We Doing This?

The goal of this initiative is to help our community in these uncertain times by supporting Birmingham’s nonprofit organizations.

Since our founding Bham Now has worked closely with Birmingham’s nonprofit community.

Nonprofits take care of our loved ones and fellow Birminghamians in need. They give us music, the arts and joy. They remind us of our history and move our community forward.

Nonprofits make Birmingham special.

Here is a sample of groups we have worked with:
