In November of 2000, United Way of Smith County identified the need for an education and training resource to foster excellence in area nonprofits and the East Texas Center for Nonprofits (ETCN) was established.
We are committed to helping nonprofits throughout East Texas by providing management training and coaching services to ensure a stable and sustainable future. Last year ETCN offered 350 training hours and served 2071 individual nonprofit professionals representing over 280 organizations. Our onsite library and personalized services in the areas of Board Governance, Strategic Planning, Grant Research, and 501c3 help strengthen nonprofits by providing essential tools and resources they need to succeed. The Center provides a varied range of management expertise, assistance, and services for staff, boards, and volunteers, and Membership helps us to provide them for a low or even no-fee.
Dedicated to building a community of strong executive and board leadership, ETCN has initiated a Nonprofit Management Certificate course to develop leadership skills of executive management in the nonprofit sector and will present the first East Texas Nonprofit Lecture Series as a new opportunity for our East Texas nonprofits.
We succeed when we strengthen nonprofits to realize their impact in our East Texas community.
