Savings on member benefits more than offset the cost of membership
The Center helps nonprofit organizations accomplish more by providing tools, resources and services that improve efficiency, build capacity and strengthen sustainability. Many of these benefits are available to members only, and all are either free or significantly discounted for members.
The Center’s Training Hub offers comprehensive professional development opportunities for the nonprofit community taught by top professionals in the region. Center members pay a fraction of the registration fees on Center courses (more than 100 offered annually), the Executive Preparation Institute and Board Basics A to Z.
The Resource Center provides immeasurable savings to our members, enabling them to find answers and solutions without the high costs of consultation and labor investment. Accessible 24/7, the Resource Center offers a wide range of current information and nonprofit management tools, including survey results, guidelines, templates, manuals, sample policies, best practices and more.
The Center helps nonprofits cultivate strong, effective boards to broaden awareness and support for their missions. Board Match, which includes recruiting, training, matching and on-boarding new board members, is available to nonprofits for $500, but is a free benefit for Center members.
The Center offers several competitions for nonprofits, with opportunities to earn cash grants, organizational assessments, recommendations from experts, great PR and more. Application fees are waived for Center members, and event participation fees are either waived or heavily discounted.
Affordable conference and meeting space is hard to come by, especially for nonprofit organizations. The Center has a conveniently located conference room available for rent to nonprofit organizations, businesses and other community members. Center members can rent at significant discounts, saving up to $325 on full-day rentals.
The Center's online employment resource center connects individuals dedicated to a career in the nonprofit community with nonprofit employers in the Greater Washington region who seek their talents and skills. Center members save 50% on job postings.
