Initiative for Nonprofit Excellence

The Initiative for Nonprofit Excellence at the Rhode Island Foundation builds the capacity of nonprofit organizations so they can better achieve their missions. We value our nonprofit partners and the work they do and we are committed to strengthening the sector.

 Initiative for Nonprofit Excellence

The Initiative supports nonprofits by sharing best practices, providing tools, doing good research, and encouraging leadership. We provide tools and information to promote:

  • Good governance
  • Sound management
  • Cross-sector collaboration
  • Reliable research

Our work

Since 2008, we have provided training, technical assistance, funding, and support to nearly 3,000 program participants representing more than 1,100 organizations.

We believe strong leadership is a cornerstone for nonprofit success. INE programs have offered leadership development for more than 1,000 board members, 160 Rhode Island Foundation Fellows, and 50 Emerging Leaders.

Strong infrastructure means that organizations have the capacity to deliver services more effectively. INE has provided multi-year capacity-building and support to more than 30 nonprofits.
