Starting a Nonprofit?

The North Carolina Center for Nonprofits is a state association for 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations who join our membership. To member organizations, we offer a wide variety of Member-only benefits that 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. Businesses offering those services can be found in our vendor directory

Here are helpful resources for starting a nonprofit: 

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.
