In an effort to assist nonprofits with capacity building, we provide a variety of resources. You are welcome to stop in the office and look through our library of nonprofit topics. Have a specific question on board governance or current statistics? Just call or email and we will do our best to get you the answer you need. BoardSource.org is an excellent resource for nonprofits, and we have several free resources we can send you.
