About CT Nonprofit Center

Our vision is to create a professional nonprofit community where leaders share ideas, services and knowledge for the benefit of those served by their collective missions.

CT Nonprofit Center (the Center) is a program of CT Community Nonprofit Alliance (formerly Connecticut Association of Nonprofits). The Center serves as ‘home’ to multiple nonprofit organizations who share space, resources and services.

The Center is designed to provide opportunities for members to reap the benefits of significant cost savings while operating in a collaborative environment. Members of the Center gain the tools they need to accelerate their missions and deepen their impact.
