We believe that if nonprofits were eliminated, the health and well-being of our communities would decline significantly. Nonprofit organizations play a vital role in building healthy communities and improving people’s lives. Across the region, local nonprofit organizations are working every day to strengthen communities, provide critical services, and advance equality and opportunity for all.

Developing more high-quality nonprofit leaders, improving organizational effectiveness, and increasing accountability advances healthy, thriving communities.

CNS and NAO Have Officially Joined Forces
Since 2002, the Center for Nonprofit Stewardship has educated and empowered nonprofit boards, staff, and volunteers in sound financial, administrative and organizational stewardship.

It has been an honor to serve the organizations that make our communities safer, healthier, and more vibrant. Because when nonprofits thrive, communities thrive!

As 2020 closes, the merge of CNS’s programs and services into the Nonprofit Association of Oregon is realized. This unification has brought the best of both organizations under one umbrella and provides a major growth opportunity for the shared mission we both have to serve charitable organizations across the state. It is with NAO that CNS’s mission and vision will live on. This is the right move at the right time in service to our sector. We thank you for your support!

We look forward to continuing to serve you as part of the NAO team!
