The NH Center for Nonprofits is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, statewide association dedicated to providing programs and resources that support nonprofit organizational capacity building and to partnering with sector leaders, businesses, and the broader community to elevate the visibility and status of the nonprofit sector.
It is our vision that the nonprofit sector of New Hampshire will have high-quality, easily accessible capacity building resources, a variety of consistent opportunities for learning, and the support needed to sustain strong leadership that adapts creatively to change. As a result, the people, communities, and the environment of New Hampshire will thrive.
The New Hampshire Center for Nonprofits strengthens and gives voice to the state’s nonprofit sector through leadership, collaboration, and learning opportunities.
Nonprofit organizations are vital to the well-being of the people, communities and environment of New Hampshire. When nonprofits have strong leaders, are able to adapt to change, are well managed, and have the technical expertise they need, they are able to effectively and efficiently achieve the missions with which our communities have entrusted them.
Dedicated to capacity building, the Center is a statewide association with more than 600 nonprofit, corporate, and individual members. The Center offers a wide range of leadership, management, and technical skill building educational programs, advanced seminars, and peer learning circles to the entire sector. The center hosts an information rich website and publishes a weekly electronic newsletter filled with information and resources relevant to the nonprofit sector. The Center acts as a catalyst and a convener on important issues which impact the nonprofit sector. It also works to unify the sector offering a yearly Nonprofit Leadership Summit and other statewide and regional networking and collaborating events.
