The Institute for Nonprofit Innovation and Excellence (INIE) is a management support organization founded in 2014 to strengthen the capacity and impact of the nonprofit sector through advocacy, education and collaboration.

Through a focus on capacity-building, collaboration and creativity, INIE works to enhance the nonprofit sector and ensure that it continues to serve as a driving force for this region’s economy and quality of life. In addition to offering trainings and workshops for nonprofit leaders on topics such as fundraising, finance, communications, strategic planning and more, INIE works strategically to leverage resources on nonprofits’ behalf.

Are you a nonprofit organization seeking to collaborate with other nonprofits or businesses to help in the relief efforts?
