The Center for Nonprofits and Philanthropy (CNP) improves the effectiveness of nonprofit and philanthropic organizations in Texas and beyond through engaged learning, high-quality research, and professional outreach.

Nonprofit and philanthropic organizations are the backbone of healthy and vibrant communities. Echoing President Bush’s “thousand” points of light, local communities are strengthened by a voluntary sector that facilitates community engagement, supports giving and volunteering, and fosters social innovation and entrepreneurship. The Center for Nonprofits and Philanthropy works to build capacity, disseminate knowledge, and prepare students in regards to nonprofit and philanthropic organizations and the collaborative systems in which they operate.

The Nonprofit Management Program has a national ranking of 12 overall and 8th among public programs by US News & World Report.

“For we're a nation of community, of thousands and tens of thousands of ethnic, religious, social, business, labor union, neighborhood, regional and other organizations, all of them varied, voluntary and unique… a brilliant diversity spreads like stars, like a thousand points of light in a broad and peaceful sky.”

George H.W. Bush, 41st President of the United States
