Starting a Nonprofit?

The North Carolina Center for Nonprofits is a state association for 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations who join our membership. As a membership organization, we offer a wide variety of Members-only benefits which support our mission to educate, connect, and advocate for North Carolina nonprofits. We do not offer services in helping to start a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. We’ve collected some helpful resources below: 

Once you submit your 501(c)(3) application, we invite you to join the Center and experience our Members-only benefits.


If you'd simply like to volunteer, visit our Member Directory to find nonprofits in your community and contact them directly.
