Center for Nonprofit Excellence

Founded in 2008, The Center for Nonprofit Excellence is committed to helping East Central Illinois nonprofits and their boards to be as effective as possible. We facilitate collaboration and sharing of best practices that result in a strong, vibrant nonprofit sector. We do this by:

  1. Strengthening nonprofits’ performance through trainings, workshops and Board Bootcamp sessions
  2. Promoting nonprofit collaboration through peer circles and information sharing
  3. Supporting emerging nonprofit ventures through the Community Solutions Incubator
