NH Center for Nonprofits Announces Graduates of Hoffman-Haas Fellowship

Concord, NH – The NH Center for Nonprofits extends its congratulations to twenty-six new graduates who completed the Hoffman-Haas Fellowship, the Center’s signature nonprofit board leadership program. Each of the graduating Hoffman-Haas Fellows received mentoring from an experienced board member and attended workshops with nationally recognized experts on topics of fiscal strategy, sustainability, fundraising, and governance.

The Fellowship responds to the critical need for an expanded and diverse pool of community leaders who are ready to bring their talent, passion and commitment to volunteer board service. Since the 2014 program launch, 295 Fellows and Mentors from across the state have completed the program. The 2021 cohort was generously sponsored by McLane Middleton, Merrimack County Savings Bank, the New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority, and Penchansky & Co.. Named in honor of two NH philanthropists known for their dedication to the vibrancy of our state and the well-being of families, the Hoffman-Haas Fellowship honors John E. Hoffman Jr. of Sullivan and Thomas W. Haas of Durham.
