The NonProfit Center

NonProfit Center is located at 89 South Street, Boston MA 02111

Convene, Connect, Network, and Learn Together

Owned and operated by TSNE, the NonProfit Center is home to more than 50 nonprofits, and welcomes visitors from hundreds of organizations every year. The building is a hub of activity where people come to convene, connect, network, and learn together.

Members of the NonProfit Center in Boston believe that by working together, much more can be achieved with, and for, its members, as well as the larger nonprofit community, and the residents of Greater Boston and beyond. The building fosters a physical and cultural environment that supports the needs of nonprofits.

The First of it’s Kind

The NonProfit Center is the first mission-based, multi-tenant center for nonprofits in Massachusetts. Its office and meeting facilities are available for rental at below-market rates to many nonprofits who would otherwise not be able to afford space in Boston. The building, located at 89 South Street in Boston’s Leather District, is an architecturally distinctive property and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is located just one block from the South Station transportation center, an easy walk to the Massachusetts State House and Boston City Hall, and to the many social and cultural activities nearby.


Our Space

During the renovation of the Nonprofit Center in 2004, TSNE committed to preserving the architectural details that embody the building’s past and developed a vision to restore the building for the future using environmentally preferred materials and design. The building recycles or composts 75%of its waste and uses high-efficiency light and HVAC systems. The NonProfit Center has LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council and is ENERGY STAR® certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
