Center for Nonprofit Excellence

Nonprofit Survey

CNE Nonprofit SurveyThis anonymous survey is part of an ongoing, comprehensive evaluation of the work of the Center for Nonprofit Excellence (CNE). The purpose is to better understand how the CNE’s work with capacity building is affecting nonprofits in our region and what we might do to strengthen this work.

The survey takes about 10 minutes. It asks about changes in your organization over the past year and your interactions with CNE, if any. It also explores changes you would like to see in the year ahead and your suggestions for CNE. Those who complete the survey are eligible for a prize drawing (details below).

The Nonprofit Survey is now closed. Over 200 participated. Thank you!

  • Secure the necessary resources and supports to carry out their work
