The Center for Nonprofit Excellence (CNPE) is a joint project of the United Way of Central New Mexico and the Albuquerque Community Foundation. Our mission is to help build the capacity of nonprofits in New Mexico.

Throughout our website you will find tools, information, training and networking opportunities geared toward strengthening nonprofits. 

Our resources section offers information, networking and training opportunities related to fundraising, board development, financial management, leadership, technology and other resources.

The training and events section of our site includes upcoming training opportunities hosted by CNPE, community training events that can help strengthen nonprofit capacity, and relevant online training opportunities as well.  In this section you will also find local peer networks for nonprofit executive leadership, young nonprofit professionals, and fundraising professionals.

Check out our news section to find out what is happening at CNPE as well as in the broader nonprofit community in New Mexico.

If you're interested in getting involved with nonprofits in our state, that section of our site includes current job openings, internship and volunteer opportunities, and vacancies on local nonprofit boards.

CNPE offers two excellent resources for nonprofits and the broader community-- the New Mexico Grantmakers Directory and the New Mexico Nonprofit Directory.  We ask all nonprofits to take a look at the Nonprofit Directory, and if your organization isn't currently listed please submit your information to us.

Finally, if you are a local business or individual and would like to support the work we do, please visit our donate page.  We are grateful for any and all contributions, which will help us strengthen and expand the work we do to support nonprofits in New Mexico.  Thank you!
