“CNS offered a Learn@Lunch series of workshops in my area covering some great fundraising and board development topics. These workshops were inexpensive, accessible, and thoughtfully executed in a “bite-sized” fashion to reach busy non-profit staff and volunteers with vital information. L@L is a great model and will make me look for more CNS programming. Thank you for being a great resource for non-profits, CNS!”

“Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge with us small organizations who thrive to make our resources to value two or three times more! As the director of The TREE Institute, which is formed by Latinas/os and works with very low income populations of immigrants, I have been seeking simple and low cost ways to train and develop our Board of Directors.
