Our mission: To create and sustain nonprofit excellence.
Our vision: Better communities through extraordinary nonprofit services.
The Center was created in 1986 by the Frist Foundation and the United Way of Metropolitan Nashville to improve the skills of nonprofit executives in Middle Tennessee. This simple concept has blossomed into a full set of training, consulting and evaluation programs that meet the education and management needs of our growing nonprofit community.
The Center now provides a home to Middle Tennessee’s nonprofit leaders by offering a place to relax, to share triumphs, and to find solutions to problems. It is a place for nonprofit board members, executives and staff to learn how to enhance their services – and for the community to appreciate and recognize the enormous positive impact made by these nonprofit agencies.
CNM thanks these funders for their generous operating support of the Center.
