North Country Center of Nonprofit Excellence


The North Country Center of Nonprofit Excellence (NCCNE) was conceptualized and planned in 2019, and began operations in January 2020. With the Northern New York Community Foundation (NNYCF) as its key partner, the NCCNE offers professional education in courses that improve the effectiveness and efficiency of nonprofits throughout Northern New York. In the spring of 2020, the North Country Council of Social Agencies joined the NCCNE as a curriculum advisory committee, which strengthened the syllabus to meet the needs of the nonprofit community.

The mission of the NCCNE is to create a professional nonprofit community in Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence Counties that maximizes limited resources to most effectively and efficiently serve the community through the education and utilization of best practices, collaboration, and specialized training.
