The united voice for NC’s nonprofit sector.

Hard at work to protect the interests of the entire sector, the Center defeated proposed legislation to eliminate nonprofits’ sales tax refunds and tax deductions for charitable giving. 

An advocate trusted by legislators and nonprofits  

Get timely policy updates on information you must know about proposed legislation that directly impacts your tax exemption, compliance, and budget.

A reliable source on best practices for tax-exempt nonprofits

Resources like “Principles & Practices for Nonprofit Excellence,” “Guidebook for Nonprofit Boards of Directors,” and legal compliance checklists help ensure that you maintain the public trust.

A champion for the nonprofit sector and the public good

From modernizing endowment investment laws, to cutting red tape for nonprofit-government relations, to protecting charitable giving incentives – we’re here to protect the whole sector.

A treasure trove on best practices and confidential assistance 

Member benefits such as carefully-selected resources at Information Central on governance and management, the Statewide Conference, briefings on legal and accounting changes, pro bono consultations in accounting, HR, marketing, law, and coaching.

A negotiator of ways to save you money

We’ve negotiated huge cost savings on unemployment insurance, retirement plans, and other necessities from supplies to software. NC nonprofits have saved millions of dollars with our Member benefits.

“There have been a number of questions I've had, and the Center is often the first place I turn.  I am especially appreciative of David and his excellent work in public policy and advocacy.  We are at the early stages of implementing this in our organization, and David has been a ready and reliable resource.”
