Local governments, trade associations, chambers of commerce, colleges and universities are natural partners with local nonprofits. They are essential links into the community, providing contract or financial support, community programs and services, volunteers, networking, and leadership. Likewise, nonprofits need these good partners to successfully achieve their missions.

The Center welcomes any government agency, departments at colleges or universities, or other types of 501(c) nonprofits [e.g. 501(c)(6) – chambers of commerce] that want to support us in serving North Carolina’s robust nonprofit sector. As an Associate your annual contribution helps the Center provide nonprofits with affordable technical assistance, pro bono services, information, and training programs.

Associates receive Center benefits as part of their $250 support. To learn more, see our Associate Benefits summary table.
