    The North Carolina Center for Nonprofits has announced that Ivan Canada will be its new President and CEO beginning in February 2024. Canada will be the third leader of the Center since its founding in 1990.

  • Ivan Canada, who has led North Carolina for Community and Justice for almost 10 years, is leaving the Greensboro organization to become president and CEO of the North Carolina Center for Nonprofits.
  • Jeanne C. Tedrow, President and CEO of the North Carolina Center for Nonprofits, announced that she will retire at the end of this year after serving nonprofits across the state with the Center since 2017.
  • Planning for a successful executive transition is a critical component of strategic planning for all organizations and is key to sustainability.

  • Dear Colleagues,

    It is with mixed feelings that I share my retirement as President and CEO of the North Carolina Center for Nonprofits. Thank you for the opportunity to serve nonprofits across the state with the Center since 2017.

    It has been my privilege to work with an incredible Center team who is truly committed to our mission to connect, educate, and advocate for North Carolina nonprofits. Likewise, it has been my honor to work with the Center’s board of directors to strengthen our foundation and build for the future.

  • Dear Friends of the North Carolina Center for Nonprofits,

  • In this session, you will gain insight on the hot topics of attracting, recruiting, and retaining top talent within nonprofits. This session is designed for staff responsible for the talent and growth of their organization. Learn how culture impacts each of these verticals and what other organizations are seeing and doing that are producing positive results!

    Learning Outcomes:

  • The work of the Executive Director and CEO position can seem unending and perhaps even isolating. But on the horizon, nonprofit leaders may be able to decrease burnout through careful consideration and implementation of shared or collaborative leadership models. For example, one executive may be responsible for overseeing the programmatic of fundraising aspects of the organization, while the other executive may oversee operations and technical administration.

  • Patti Gillenwater, CEO, Elinvar

  • Contributors: Jeanne C. Tedrow, President & CEO, North Carolina Center for Nonprofits; and an Interim Executive Director currently serving at a nonprofit in North Carolina
