Bristol Organizations

An Organization Made Up Of Organizations

An Organization made up of Organizations


The Goal of Bristol Organizations is to provide service organizations in the area with the best possible avenue for mutual communication and the greatest exposure to the community.



A key part of economic development in any region is the development of effective non-profit organizations that provide benefits such as health and human services, cultural activities and educational opportunities. The promotion and development of the non-profit community should be an integral part of any region’s economic plan.

It is no secret to those in the non-profit arena that today’s economic climate has been difficult, at best, for all non-profit groups nationwide. Typically, because most non-profit organizations are under funded and under staffed, they must work smart, make maximum use of their volunteer base and promote the good name of the organization throughout the area.

Working smart is utilizing every management tool available to them and getting others to assist wherever possible. Bristol Organizations, established in 1988, is at the center of the non-profit community and is well established as the focal point for non-profit promotion, networking, communication and assistance.

Bristol Organizations
is continuing to move forward with a new web site, and electronic Newsletter, a non profit community calendar, educational opportunities and much more.  Your non-profit should be involved with Bristol Organizations.

  • To provide continual updates to the community calendar of events and report these to the newspaper and the Chamber of Commerce.
  • To coordinate activities and projects of member organizations in an effort to avoid conflicts in scheduling.
  • To make a non profit directory of community service organizations available to newcomers and the community at large
