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.

I’ve been associated with the Center through my work with several nonprofits, and I believe in the Center!  It’s the greatest thing since sliced bread and canned beer.  I’ve used the Center for everything from Legal Advice to buying paper clips.

The Center’s Accounting Assistance Program saved me a lot of time and expense in finding someone who knew how to approach tax filings while waiting for 501(c)(3) approval.  I appreciate the great service—I am very happy!
