BoardSource Announces Partnership
with the Center for Excellence in Nonprofits


Washington, D.C. – BoardSource, the leading national provider of resources related to exceptional nonprofit governance standards, is proud to announce its partnership with the Center for Excellence in Nonprofits, the premiere provider of leadership support to nonprofit organizations in the Silicon Valley and Bay Area regions of California.

“BoardSource has long recognized that exceptional nonprofit boards provide inspiring leadership, far-reaching vision, and rigorous oversight to the mission-driven organizations they serve,” said Linda Crompton, BoardSource president and chief executive officer.  “Our collaboration with the Center of Excellence in Nonprofits will allow us to better serve and reach the nonprofit leaders in California so they can better serve their communities.”

Through this new partnership, members of the Center for Excellence in Nonprofits will receive Silicon Valley-based trainings customized to the needs of their community, a membership in BoardSource, and access to a new resource center located in the Center for Excellence in Nonprofits’ Redwood Shores office.

 “Our two organizations already have a strong history of working together to provide our local nonprofit leaders with the information and resources they need to build and strengthen their boards,” said Molly Polidoroff, CEN’s executive director.  “This affiliation will allow us to have an even greater impact.”

BoardSource and The Center for Excellence in Nonprofits look forward to presenting their first co-hosted training program for local leaders on June 15th.  Please visit www.cen.org to learn more about the opportunities available to California-based leaders and to register for the June program.
