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
    • We succeed when we help nonprofits clear obstacles to collaboration. Join our private Facebook Group here! Are you a local nonprofit Executive Director or CEO? Email us to learn more about our monthly Executive Director Leadership Network meetings.
  3. Supporting emerging nonprofit ventures through the Community Solutions Incubator
