A local group of funders had a vision of an organization that would nurture a community of strong nonprofits to improve and transform the quality of life in Southeast Texas.
The Center would provide management support services to nonprofits and funders enabling them to effectively serve the surrounding counties.
This vision became a reality in April 2008, as the Southeast Texas Nonprofit Development Center opened its doors to serve the community.
The mission of the Southeast Texas Nonprofit Development Center is to provide quality management support services to nonprofits and funders, enabling them to effectively serve the community.
For fifteen years, the Southeast Texas Nonprofit Development Center has been a leading advocate, educator, and service provider for nonprofits and funders throughout Southeast Texas.
The Center’s Board of Directors and Executive Director is a diversified and well-informed group of community leaders whose goal is to lead this organization in assisting nonprofits to become more effective and efficient.
