“I wanted to take a quick moment to thank you and the CNP staff for putting together the wonderful Engage event on Tuesday evening. It was such a lovely setting and a great opportunity to meet and network with a number of nonprofits in the Chattanooga area. Your dedication to supporting both the organizations and the individuals in the nonprofit community are greatly appreciated.
Thank you for a fantastic event, and I look forward to participating in your upcoming endeavors.”
“The Interfaith Homeless Network was able to recruit a board member with development, fundraising and publicity/public relations experience utilizing the Center for Nonprofit's website. What a great resource!”Mary Ellen Galloway
“We have found the United Way's Center for Nonprofits to be a tremendous resource for us at Bethel Bible Village. The center enables us to receive specialized training, materials and resources that are tailored to our nonprofit needs. These resources are available to members at great value attainable even in nonprofit budgets.
We have found the job board to be an excellent source of job candidates. The job board is a free feature of membership and has greatly reduced my recruiting time.”

“I thought the training was great. There were so many misunderstandings and misconceptions on our board. The Center for Nonprofits provided a good general overview of what a board should do. After training is when board members began to take board roles more seriously...previously they had thought of themselves as more advisory. If it hadn’t been for the Center for Nonprofits, I don’t think I could have done my job as executive director without their help.”
“Just a quick thank you for all your hard work to make "eNgAge" such a success last night. Events like that don't just happen--they take hours and hours of work. Joanna and I both enjoyed it, and felt like it was well worth our time.”

“When I need to know more about issues relevant to the nonprofit industry, I turn to the Center for Nonprofits. Whether I’m looking for information, resources, support, or training. The CNP is my one-stop shop for what I need, when I need it. Their [whatever the real name is] library is a treasure of up-to-date grant listings as well as books and periodicals that give me answers, ideas and insights. CNP consultancy services and personnel are exceptional and affordable. I haven’t come across a nonprofit question that the CNP has not been able to answer, and that saves me time and money.”
“I would highly recommend a lot of their training to new board members and smaller nonprofits. The training introduces resources in the field that are not monetarily costly. The Center for Nonprofits can also provide help if you call them.”
“As result of the professional assistance given by CNP, the Epilepsy Foundation of Southeast Tennessee (EFSETN) has been successful in the development of its strategic plan and successful in applying and receiving several grants. Thank you CNP for your assistance and as a result EFSETN is in a stronger position of making a difference in the lives of people who have epilepsy, their loved ones and care givers.”

“The Center for Nonprofit has been an invaluable resource to our now-thriving community center not once but twice. When we first started ten years ago, CNP helped us secure major federal and local funding and guided us to invaluable partnerships with community agencies and groups. After a few years, the community center began to flounder. We sought CNP’s services, and once again CNP helped us become the vital community center we are today. We are most grateful for CNP’s ongoing, readily accessible, and expert guidance!”

"I thought the training was very valuable for us. It affirmed we were doing a lot of things right but it got us more focused. It got our strategic plan very honed and specific. It did a lot for the small amount of time we actually spent in training. The Center for Nonprofits was good at being mindful of the time and being very well organized. It was very helpful for the point of time our organization was at.”
"Thank you for your organization’s support in the search for a new Executive Director for our museum. The listings on your web site and in the newspaper have been very helpful."

"As a new nonprofit service provider in North Georgia we found CNP to be an essential resource providing professional training, funding resources, guidance through mentorship, networking opportunities and up-to-date grant information. CNP has built a bridge for the nonprofit community in our service area."

"Listing our open position on the CNP site brought us a really great candidate. We now have two employees who are outstanding and have come from your site. I highly recommend it as it brings a much higher quality resume than any other advertising method I have found."
“The instructor seemed very competent and kept us engaged for hours and hours. They made what seemed like a very boring subject very interesting. There were times when we broke into small groups and that was very helpful. It was a good way to get to know other board members on my board.”
"Thanks again to both of you for all your guidance, encouragement, and support over the months of this extremely challenging transition. I definitely wouldn't be able to walk away feeling good without your help. I look forward to working with you both again in a different capacity."
