Colorado Nonprofit Development Center (CNDC)
As nonprofits grow and enhance communities across our state, Colorado Nonprofit Development Center is there to guide and support them. We ensure the necessary foundation for enduring influence and long-term success.
Our mission is to enable all Colorado communities to thrive by maximizing the impact of nonprofits through our fiscal sponsorship.
CNDC's vision is to maximize the impact of nonprofits through fiscal sponsorship to enable all Colorado communities to thrive.
We are the only 501(c)(3) nonprofit in the region offering emerging, transitioning, and established organizations a formal arrangement that allows them to operate under the umbrella of CNDC’s legal and tax status without having to form their own 501(c)(3).
Fiscal sponsorship through the Colorado Nonprofit Development Center includes:
Expert back office support: CNDC helps our Projects make the best use of precious resources. By sharing costs for back-office services with other CNDC Projects, the fee is substantially less than what each would pay independently. Our in-house team of topic experts allows our Projects to focus on their mission and programs, secure in the knowledge that their affairs are being expertly managed.
Reliable accounting, reporting, tracking, and compliance support: CNDC holds itself to the highest standards of ethics, financial accountability, and community stewardship. Our proven guidance and support helps our Projects demonstrate credibility and accountability to their stakeholders.
Management support and effective growth strategies: Our Projects benefit not only from our organizational management services, but also from the expert guidance we offer to help them more effectively expand their impact on the community.
One-to-one professional and organizational development guidance: We offer one-to-one guidance to Project leadership in the areas of nonprofit best practices, financial best practices, human resources and risk management to set our Projects up for long-term success.
We take care of the management functions of finance, human resources, legal compliance, and risk management, freeing them to focus on their missions. They split the fee for these services with other Projects, which lowers the cost substantially.
In addition to the services we offer through our fiscal sponsorship, we also offer accounting services to established 501(c)(3)s. These nonprofits outsource their accounting to CNDC and receive hands-on support in financial management that allows them to focus their time and energy on providing quality services in the community.
