The Nonprofit Center

Our vision is to create a professional nonprofit community where leaders share ideas, services and knowledge for the benefit of those served by their collective missions.

CT Nonprofit Center (the Center) is a program of The Alliance: The Voice of Community Nonprofits (formerly CT Nonprofits). The Center serves as ‘home’ to multiple nonprofit organizations who share space, resources and services. They connect organizations with information, education, advocacy, and collaboration.

The Center is designed to provide opportunities for members to reap the benefits of significant cost savings while operating in a collaborative environment. Members of the Center gain the tools they need to accelerate their missions and deepen their impact.

About the Center

The CT Nonprofit Center is home to 23 nonprofit organizations in downtown Hartford, and is the second largest nonprofit center in the Northeast United States.

The Center was developed in partnership with the Corporation for Independent Living (CIL) who owns and manages the buildings. The Alliance is the anchor tenant and oversees the operations of the Center.

We have four conference rooms, a shared kitchen, and amenities. The offices have plentiful light, exposed brick and beams.
