Center for Nonprofit Excellence

The Center for Nonprofit Excellence was established in 1999 by community leaders including founding CEO Kevin Connelly, the Donors Forum of Kentuckiana, Metro United Way, and the City of Louisville. Prior to the opening of CNPE, the team found that nonprofits in Greater Louisville were missing a central point to access information, best practices, professional development, and, hands-on consultation aimed at helping nonprofits reach their potential. Just over two decades later, CNPE is recognized as the go-to resource for the area’s nonprofit community. This organization’s mission is to accelerate the success of nonprofits through capacity building, connections, and community support to amplify the good work of the sector. CNPE was created expressly to help nonprofits achieve their missions more effectively and with excellence – from getting started through strategic planning and resource development. CNPE envisions a just and equitable community that supports and emboldens nonprofits to ensure everyone has the resources and opportunities they need to thrive.
