Funders

The philanthropic funding community is uniquely positioned to see the challenges and opportunities of the nonprofit sector at a macro level.  Perhaps you’ve been approached by grantees with an out-of-the-box idea for creating a hub of community activity, and you aren’t sure how to evaluate their plan. Maybe you’re seeing patterns of duplication across your community, but don’t know how to start moving the conversation to deeper collaborations.  The Nonprofit Centers Network can help you channel the latest thinking around streamlining overhead while increasing impact into your grantmaking. We are happy to support you and your grantees in a variety of ways, from feasibility studies to presenting the latest research on shared resources, and much in between. Contact us at info@nonprofitcenters.org today!

Funder Case Studies

Member Highlight: The Village Center

The Nonprofit Village was the first multi-tenant nonprofit center in Maryland. Our mission is to strengthen the effectiveness of nonprofit organizations by providing educational and development programs, essential capacity building services, back-office operations,and opportunities for collaboration. We do this all within an affordable shared office space, where we house 37 nonprofit organizations and serve more than 300 others through development programs. The benefits and services provided to members help them reduce essential operating and administrative costs, allowing these important groups to focus more keenly on their mission of providing vital services to our community. We have become a first-stop shop for a variety of nonprofits and associations that need to know the resources available and be connected to the expertise that is critical to expanding their operations. With options for coworking and offices leases, we can meet the needs of nonprofits at every point of their life-cycle.

What has the consulting team been up to lately? In short, a lot. We offered project-based consulting services, coaching, meeting facilitation and customized training opportunities to:
