The goals of the program are to raise standards, increase knowledge, and improve performance of volunteer administrators in North Carolina.

Nonprofits from daycare centers and museums to colleges, hospitals, and YMCAs are part of our daily lives. They are an essential part of what makes North Carolina a great place to live, work, and raise a family. The nonprofit sector also is a significant part of North Carolina’s economy. This economic report describes the stunning size, variety, and impact of North Carolina’s large and diverse nonprofit sector. The information shows why a healthy nonprofit sector is critical to our state’s prosperity. This report is for leaders in nonprofits, business, government, and philanthropy, as well as everyone else who cares about North Carolina’s economy and quality of life. You can use it to educate yourself and others about how nonprofits impact your county and state. The N.C. Center for Nonprofits prepared this report using data gathered in collaboration with the National Council of Nonprofits, the Urban Institute’s National Center for Charitable Statistics, the Nonprofit Finance Fund, the N.C. Department of Commerce, and nonprofits throughout the state.
