Center for Nonprofit Leadership

Working with nonprofit staff, board members and volunteers is at the heart of all we do.  

  • In our workshops and webinars, we strengthen skills, connections, and relationships.
  • Our Board Leadership Institute supports teams of executives and board members investing in their governance practices.
  • In our Board Service Bootcamp, we ready the next generation of board leaders.

And thanks to our Campaign for the Future endowment fund, our long-term sustainability is strong.

Through it all, we take seriously the trust that the community places in our work. Join us today! 

With a gift of any size to the Center for Nonprofit Leadership, you support all of our region's nonprofits, "helping nonprofit leaders do better at doing good."
