Nonprofit Management Institute

September 10 - October 15, 2024

Nonprofits are essential partners within our North Carolina communities. When nonprofit organizations have a strong foundation and manage themselves well, they can focus more wholly on the services and support they bring to our communities.

That is why the North Carolina Center for Nonprofits launched the Nonprofit Management Institute, a virtual learning cohort of nonprofit executives, managers, and board leaders to assess their organizations’ management practices, identify successes and challenges, build capacity where there are gaps, and work towards long-term sustainability.

Developed from ongoing nonprofit management research and the Center’s guide, Principles & Practices: Best Practices for North Carolina Nonprofits, this 6-session series facilitates learning, discussion, and fundamental management strategies around board governance, program design and evaluation, strategic planning, fundraising, financial management, and human resources.

We appreciate our partnership with the Guilford Nonprofit Consortium that brought about the transition of this program from the Consortium to the Center to expand the content and open the opportunity to nonprofits all across the state.

Program Sessions:

Orientation, Capacity Assessment, Nonprofit Management

Participants engage in the process to assess the management capacity of their nonprofit as a benchmark to determine future capacity building. The assessment process fosters a working knowledge on 12 fundamental management principles and the current management condition of a nonprofit. The overarching significance and theory-to-practice approach to managing a nonprofit is explained, in alignment with the Center’s Principles & Practices guide. This experience offers both new and experienced nonprofit leaders an opportunity to learn and explore the twelve core management and governance principles for nonprofits to improve and strengthen their organizations.
