Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The Nonprofit Center of Northeast Florida believes that diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) make us a better and stronger organization. We are committed to fostering a work environment where DEI strategy is fully integrated into our values, our programs, and services, ensuring that we are actively breaking down barriers that limit access to resources, learning and belonging, and lifting up the assets that contribute to a fully inclusive workplace. To achieve our vision of a vibrant, inclusive Northeast Florida, the Nonprofit Center acknowledges that it and the nonprofit sector have not always been leaders in dismantling systemic issues and, in some ways, have enabled inequitable systems. We are no longer satisfied with the status quo. This statement is the latest step in a process that we commit to being publicly accountable for. View our Commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.
Overview and History
A true community initiative, the Nonprofit Center traces its roots back to a 1998 Jacksonville Community Council, Inc. (JCCI) study of the community’s nonprofit sector, which called for the creation of “an organization to support and advocate for a strengthened nonprofit sector in Northeast Florida.” In 2002, the Nonprofit Center of Northeast Florida opened its doors with crucial commitments from local philanthropists and the support of the nonprofit community.
The Nonprofit Center serves all 501(c)3 organizations located in Northeast Florida, especially our 300 nonprofit members. The Nonprofit Center strengthens your organization, builds your capacity to deliver on your mission, and signals a commitment to building a thriving sector, collaboration, and the Northeast Florida region.
