Recognize the accomplishments of an individual or organization with a Nonprofit Impact Award nomination

The Nonprofit Impact Awards will be presented to remarkable individuals and nonprofits that have made outstanding contributions to their communities. Awards will be presented at our Nonprofit Impact Celebration on April 4 in Bedford. The emphasis of the awards will be to recognize those who push us to work more broadly, to innovate, and to expand our ways of meeting the needs of our state.

Your chance to help bring national fundraising training and resources to NH

The Center -- in partnership with Network for Good -- is launching an assessment survey to identify NH's most common fund development challenges as well as opportunities for growth.  The results of the survey will be used to explore bringing the Jumpstart program to NH.  

Jumpstart is Network for Good’s fundraising capacity-building model designed to provide nonprofits with integrated tools, plans, and one-on-one coaching to increase their fundraising capacity and diversify revenue. 

We are excited about this opportunity and hope you will help us by completing the survey.

Check your email in the next few days for the link to participate.
