Working together to strengthen our community
Why Join the CNP?

“Our CNP membership is invaluable to the agency. We don’t have a large budget and can’t afford out of town trainings. The CNP brings fabulous speakers to our nonprofit community, both local and national talent. 
We list all of our staff openings on the CNP website, because we know individuals checking that job listing are focused on serving others through nonprofit work. The staff is also incredibly helpful when you have any questions or issues.”

Nonprofits do incredible work in the Chattanooga region. They serve children, protect our environment, promote economic development, rescue animals, serve the poor and homeless, and more. But, when your board members, staff and volunteers need training, guidance or resources to do what you do better, we are here for you.

The Center for Nonprofits works every day to strengthen our community of nonprofits by providing resources, information and expertise in nonprofit-specific topics and issues.  We bring together community leaders, funders, state regulators and others to provide information and address issues facing our local nonprofit community.
