As one of the nation's leading management support organizations, the Center for Nonprofit Management brings the most current tools for best practices in nonprofit management to thousands of nonprofit boards, staff and volunteers each year.
Although we may not serve food at homeless shelters, we guide those who do feed the hungry make better business decisions, which in turn frees up resources to feed more indigent people. When agencies that mentor children after school or protect battered women from violence are in danger of closing their doors, our staff facilitates crisis management and helps nonprofits identify emergency resources. CNM follows up with agencies in crisis by providing training, organizational assessments, board training and a lot of hand-holding for good people who have dedicated their lives to serving the needy.
Strengthen nonprofits to enhance sustainability and maximize impact.
To be the most vital resource and valued partner for the nonprofit community.
In the late 1970's, The Meadows Foundation in Dallas recognized a significant need for staff development and management assistance to charitable organizations. In 1980, with the support of other local funders, The Meadows Foundation provided the seed funding to establish the Center for Nonprofit Management (CNM) with the intent of serving primarily new, emerging charities, small nonprofits and mid-size groups by providing low cost, high quality management development consulting and business education services.
Today, CNM continues the tradition of leveraging contributions and professional relationships to deploy top-notch consultants and nonprofit experts to nonprofits striving to grow in professionalism and, most importantly, community impact. Through donations and grants, CNM covers 50% of direct costs of providing services, and therefore, is able to offer substantially discounted fees to nonprofits. Without community support, fees for consulting and seminars would more than double!
