The pro bono consultations are invaluable. I also really appreciate the compliance checklist because there’s no other place to get all that information at once.

"Having only been a member of the Center for a few months, it is unbelievable the assistance I have received from my member benefits - the compliance checklist, fundraising, grants. I check the website twice a week for content I need. The N.C. Center for Nonprofits is my 'go to' place for answers."
