Our Missionstaff

The Center for Nonprofit Excellence strengthens Southern Colorado’s nonprofit sector through leadership and resource development, advocacy and collaboration.


Our History

Since 1991, the Center for Nonprofit Excellence has been serving the Pikes Peak nonprofit community with distinction.  With more than 200 members, the Center provides training and education services, technical assistance, and ongoing networking and partnering opportunities that connect nonprofits with the region’s funding and business communities.  The Center’s wide range of products and services are tailored to meet the needs of a varied nonprofit sector, serving the small grassroots organizations as well as the large internationals. Originally part of the Chamber of Commerce as the Chamber Nonprofit Partnership, the Center for Nonprofit Excellence is now co-located with Pikes Peak United Way as a separate 501(c)(3). In 2007, the Center became a replication partner of the nationally acclaimed Standards for Excellence Institute, offering  workshops on the 55 best practices identified in the Standards for Excellence curriculum.
