Nonprofits are central to improving quality of life. They meet needs, solve problems, educate citizens, drive economic growth, provide leadership, offer civic engagement, and collaborate with others for a common good. In good times and bad, nonprofits are at the center of our communities.
At NPO Centric, our commitment is to being at the center of all things nonprofit – providing the most current information and resources, offering essential education and training, and building and strengthening leadership and sustainability.
The majority of our members are Executive Directors and CEOs, aspiring Nonprofit Founders, Board Members, Directors of Development, Fundraisers, and Major Gifts Officers.
Our members organizations change lives in our communities and beyond. Our member nonprofits feed the hungry, assist the homeless, protect the environment, supply critical care services, provide access to arts and culture, offer employment assistance, preserve history and heritage, advance education, promote literacy, deliver opportunities to individuals with disabilities, support victims of abuse, rescue animals, and so much more.
Sparked by civic vision recognizing how vital nonprofits are in strengthening our communities, the Regional Access Project Foundation (RAP) identified a need for programs and services that would empower nonprofits to become more efficient and effective. Nonprofit Organization Centric (NPO Centric) was founded in 2017 to provide essential tools, knowledge, and skills to help nonprofits build their capacity and become vibrant and sustainable organizations.
NPO Centric is an extensive online platform for nonprofit leaders providing resources and training, as well as a vital community resource center located in Riverside County, California. In 2019, nonprofit executive and award-winning fundraising professional Stephanie Minor joined NPO Centric as its Director, advancing the work of nonprofits through capacity building and technical assistance.
NPO Centric strengthens nonprofit effectiveness by providing essential tools, knowledge, and skills that nonprofits need to maximize their results and achieve their missions to better serve their clients.
