  1. The Unity Foundation CQ (Capacity Quotient) is the only nonprofit assessment that benchmarks nonprofit capacity according to 60 standards of “preferred practice” in nonprofit management. Visit www.unityfdn.org for more information.
  2. The Wilder Nonprofit Life Stage assessment determines what life stage an organization is in and the organization’s strengths and weaknesses. The tool can be used to help nonprofit organizations plan for the future, make decisions proactively, anticipate challenges, and determine necessary adjustments.

  • Nonprofit best practices

CORE PROGRAMS

Strong Management Translates into Stronger Mission Performance

Our core programs are designed to increase the management capacity of nonprofit organizations. Nonprofit capacity building refers to activities that improve and enhance a nonprofit organization’s ability to achieve its mission and sustain itself over time. One of the many benefits of Membership with NICNE is a discount on our capacity-building programs. By taking advantage of these discounts, your Membership may pay for itself!

Be sure to view our Events page for an up-to-date list of all upcoming programs.
