About The Center




Since 1990, the North Carolina Center for Nonprofits has worked to enrich our state’s communities and economy through a strong nonprofit sector and nonprofit voice.

The Center serves as an information hub on effective practices in nonprofit organizations, a statewide network for nonprofit board and staff members, and an advocate for the nonprofit sector as a whole.

We strive to:

  • Assist nonprofits to achieve their vital missions through an array of services to help them be ethical, results-oriented, collaborative, adaptive, sustainable and in legal compliance;

  • Advocate on public policy issues that affect the ability of all nonprofits to address their communities’ needs; and

  • Educate the public on the impact and value of the nonprofit sector for the people of North Carolina.

The Center also helps nonprofits to save money and time so their funds can go further, lead and manage their organizations effectively, spread innovations, support each other, prevent burnout, collaborate as appropriate and unite to serve North Carolina better.
