Northern Liberties Neighbors Association
The NLNA is a civic association and 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization. As such we may accept tax deductible contributions of any amount. Founded in 1978, the NLNA has been in operation for more than 30 years. The NLNA represents approximately 6,000 men, women and children, and more than 100 businesses, who call the Northern Liberties neighborhood of Philadelphia home. Our mission is to provide services and programs beneficial to all residents and businesses in the neighborhood, encourage and promote the preservation and beautification of our public spaces and to plan and monitor the growth and development of our neighborhood to the benefit of the community.
As a civic association, we represent the interests of our members. A member is anyone 18 or older who lives here, or who owns or runs a business here. We are governed by state and federal laws that apply to nonprofits.
