Through the Nonprofit Support Center (NSC), the Foundation seeks to stimulate the development of a capable, forward thinking and collaborative nonprofit sector in Worcester County.

Whether you are looking to develop the capacity of your team, learn new skills, or find a consultant, we’re here to help with that… and more!

The Nonprofit Support Center was established in 1999 to create access to local high quality learning opportunities with their local peers. After reducing our programming in recent years due to Covid-19, the Foundation is reinvigorating the NSC in 2024 with a $1 million commitment over three years to support nonprofits in Worcester County.

The NSC will offer a calendar of high quality “nuts and bolts” type workshops, opportunities to deep dive into content with your peers through learning cohorts, an opportunity to celebrate with each other at our annual NSC Social and connect you to external resources and consultants to help you continue to meet your mission equipped with knowledge, best practices and equitable practices.
