A Partner for Nonprofit Innovation, Efficiency and Accountability Welcome to the Colorado Nonprofit Development Center (CNDC). We are the only nonprofit in the region designed specifically to provide comprehensive fiscal sponsorship to charitable organizations under the umbrella of our 501(c)(3). When charitable organizations join our 501(c)(3), we provide robust back-office support and expert organizational guidance to equip them for success and strengthen their ability to impact the communities they serve. We maintain an in-house staff of experienced nonprofit management experts as well as experts in accounting, finance, human resources and compliance. CNDC works primarily with charitable organizations that have not yet achieved 501(c)(3) status. This can encompass organizations at virtually any stage of development – from a start-up to transitioning and established community organizations. Since CNDC also assumes responsibility for all financial and legal liabilities for our projects, it’s important that we ensure the partnership is a good fit for everyone. Our vetting process helps ensure all organizations under the CNDC umbrella are aligned with our goal of implementing innovative solutions to build stronger communities. CNDC looks for Projects that demonstrate an innovative approach to meeting a community need, strong leadership, clear objectives, a realistic budget, and an ability to attract donors. Once we have determined a charitable organization is a good match for CNDC, they become known as a ‘Project’ under the umbrella of CNDC’s 501(c)(3).
