We have all witnessed the power of helping those in need. That is why non-profits are such an amazing part of our communities. Northwest Missouri Enterprise Facilitation not only nurtures the growth and development of small businesses; the organization also strives to plant strong foundations for non­profits and charitable organizations.

Working with NWMEF is a free and confidential service that non-­profits can use to create a strategy, discuss financial planning and lead discussions within the board, among many other helpful tools. NWMEF works with organizations in Atchison, Nodaway, Worth, Holt, Andrew and Gentry counties.

NWMEF Facilitator Adam Summers, works with non-­profits on developing marketing and financial plans, as well as board retention, leadership and succession planning and sets goals for future sustainability. The board, made up of over 70 regional business owners, community leaders and volunteers, help make connections to needed resources and networking opportunities.


From leading discussions during board meetings to creating action plans, NWMEF’s mission is focused on assisting organizations to meet their goals.
