Social Current

The National Association for Societies for Organizing Charity was founded in 1911 to share information between nonprofits, raise standards of operations, and prevent poverty. Over the next century, the organization changed its focus and name several times in response to economic and social conditions, becoming the Alliance for Strong Families and Communities in 2015. Its nearly 500 members included direct service organizations, state associations, foundations, and universities that provide programs in education, counseling, workforce development, adoption and foster care, neighborhood revitalization, civic engagement, and advocacy.

In 2021, the Alliance for Strong Families and Communities merged with the Council on Accreditation (which the Alliance co-founded) to form Social Current. The new organization's core services include: peer exchange groups focused on leadership, fund development, and human resources; advocacy and toolkits; accreditation; strategic visioning and planning services; and courses and webinars.
