Two nonprofit support groups merge

 

Dallas-based Center for Nonprofit Management (CNM) and Fort Worth-based Funding Information Center (FIC) have merged to expand their reach and effectiveness for area nonprofits, the groups announced May 21.
The combined organization, called the Center for Nonprofit Management, will have offices in both Fort Worth and Dallas. The new organization is led by CNM President Cynthia B. Nunn.
Nonprofits and community leaders are invited to an open house at the Fort Worth office, located at 2701 W. Berry St., Suite 128, on May 31 from 9 to 11 a.m.
The vision in merging the significant individual resources of CNM and FIC is to create an even larger pool of affordable resources for nonprofits of all sizes throughout North Texas, according to Nunn.
“As community needs grow larger and more urgent in the current economy, the nonprofit sector is more critical than ever before,” Nunn said. “We now can guide more staff and boards to implement best practices and provide more tools and resources to nonprofits so they can effectively serve their communities. The result is great people serving great nonprofits, working together with great donors, partners and resources, to have a much greater impact on the quality of life for everyone in North Texas.”
Founded in 1980, the Center for Nonprofit Management annually helps the staff and boards of more than 2,500 nonprofit organizations develop better management and governance skills through consulting and education programs. CNM, a nonprofit itself, covers 50 percent of direct costs to provide services through donations and grants.
Also created in 1980, FIC connects nonprofits with information, education and other resources, including funding information; nonprofit management best practices; and the online Foundation Directory, a database of more than 100,000 grant makers and 3 million grant opportunities nationwide; to ensure the success of charitable organizations in the local community.
