TU’s SCeNE joins forces with INIE to help area nonprofits
Representatives from Thomas University’s Southern Center for Nonprofit Excellence (SCeNE) and Tallahassee Community College’s Institute for Nonprofit Innovation and Excellence (INIE) signed an agreement on Tuesday in which the two organizations partnered to provide education and networking resources to community-based nonprofit organizations in the area.
“SCeNE members are excited about our partnership with INIE because of the expanded opportunities it will provide for nonprofits in North Florida as well as South Georgia,” said Rick Munroe, TU’s Vice President for Advancement and Chair of the SCeNE Advisory Board. “By combining the skills and resources of our two organizations we will see a greater influence and benefit for all involved.”
Under the agreement, SCeNE and INIE will collaborate to provide education, advocacy and engagement opportunities for nonprofit organizations and the professionals of those organizations as well as pursue funding opportunities to obtain resources that will help achieve this goal.
“The newly formed partnership between SCeNE and The Institute for Nonprofit Innovation and Excellence (INIE) is symbolic of our shared commitment to strengthening the nonprofit sector through collaboration and leveraging resources,” stated Kimberly A. Moore, TCC Vice President for Workforce Development and INIE board member. “Though our partnership nonprofit organizations throughout the North Florida and South Georgia areas will experience a benefit many times over what could be accomplished with a single entity.”
