The Ascend Nonprofit Center is a five-story building, centrally located in uptown Charlotte. Our facility features space for conducting meetings with your staff, volunteers or guests and a co-working space, HopeWorks - a hub for emerging and small staff agencies.

In 2003, the Ascend Nonprofit Center sparked a national model for multi-agency space and collaboration.

The Ascend Nonprofit Center is centrally located in uptown Charlotte and encompasses 100,000 square feet of office space, meeting rooms and common areas. Our high-quality, affordable spaces are customizable and offer a welcoming place to provide services to clients and meet with stakeholders. We also offer complimentary parking for clients, volunteers and other guests, with several other paid parking options within one block of the Center. A limited number of parking spaces are allocated for employees working in the Center.


We offer two different types of lease agreements. Partner tenant leases are reserved for nonprofits and include 10-year terms with below-market rent. They also have access to all conference rooms at no cost. Market tenant leases include 3- to 5-year terms with no rent discount and limited access to conference rooms for a small fee.  All tenants receive telephone and internet. Nonprofit tenants are invited to receive full-service finance, HR and IT services through our Shared Services program.
