Colorado Center for Civic Learning and Engagement

Promoting Civic Education in Colorado's K-12 Schools.


C3LE is a project of the Colorado Nonprofit Development Center. Along with its predecessor organizations (The Center for Education in Law and Democracy, and the Civic Canopy) C3LE has been doing civic education work in Colorado for over 35 years.

The Colorado Nonprofit Development Center (CNDC) mission is to enable all Colorado communities to thrive by maximizing the impact of nonprofits through their fiscal sponsorship. Fiscal Sponsorship is a formal arrangement that allows charitable organizations to operate under the umbrella of CNDC’s legal and tax status without having to form their own 501(c)(3).

CNDC provides C3LE with management functions of finance, human resources, legal compliance, and risk management.
