What is the Nonprofit Resource Center?
In 2007, Community Connect legally incorporated the Resource Center for Nonprofit Management (RCNM) as a program of Community Connect. Shortly afterwards the name of RCNM was changed to the Nonprofit Resource Center (NRC). NONPROFIT RESOURCE CENTER’s goal is to provide professional leadership and development opportunities to support nonprofits throughout the region.
Thanks to the support of Riverside County nonprofits, funders, and community members NRC has grown into the recognized leader in Riverside County providing community data, education, information, organizational assessments and strategic planning, event planning, volunteer recruitment, technical assistance, resources, and networking to help enhance the services of hundreds of nonprofits and their leaders.
Each year, NRC hosts workshops, the Annual Nonprofit Conference, funder forums, networking mixers, a registry of expert consultants and provides hundreds of hours of technical assistance to local nonprofits. In addition, NRC hosts the Foundation Library containing over 98,000 funders and thousands of grant opportunities. A library of over 750 books, available for check out by nonprofits, is hosted at the NRC office. NRC has become the communication system for nonprofits with an email blast system listing over 3000 agencies.
