Our mission is to improve the long-term sustainability of nonprofit leaders and organizations by offering the highest quality programs, consultation, training and community-building networks.


Community Training Calendar

Our Community Calendar has a full list of upcoming programs from CEN, as well as recommended professional development and capacity building opportunities from our partners in the nonprofit sector. Check out the full list of our upcoming offerings below!

Interested, but on a limited budget? As a nonprofit ourselves, we understand this roadblock and offer a wide variety of scholarship opportunities. In addition, thanks to a recent partnership with the Applied Materials Foundation, Santa Clara County nonprofits can now access deep discounts on any "CEN TRAINING" workshop. Check out the individual registration pages below to learn more and apply.

Have a training you'd like to promote?  CEN members can email christine@cen.org to submit events to the calendar and our monthly newsletter.  Please note, we only post events that fall under the above guidelines. Click HERE to learn more about CEN membership.
