At CBT Nuggets, we care deeply about making a difference in the global community, and we believe training helps people and organizations thrive. The NuggetLove program translates these values into corporate social responsibility.

How do you build a more sustainable world?

One pair of hands at a time. We help the humanitarians who are shoring up local communities across the globe.

The NuggetLove method is simple: We partner with organizations that create self-sustaining communities. That means they do more than just address basic human needs like water, shelter, and sanitation. They also educate people, encourage entrepreneurship, and help stimulate local economies. Once we find them, we provide targeted financial support and consulting, strategically focused to help them grow, amplify their impact, and become sustainable themselves.

Organizations we have worked with

Assisting in the effort to end homelessness

Since 2017 we have partnered with St. Vincent de Paul of Lane County, Inc. to provide financial support toward their efforts to end homelessness. The primary mechanism towards this goal is the construction of Ascend Home, a transitional housing project completed in 2023. The facility will provide a safe harbor where families can anchor long enough, out of crisis and with a roof reliably overhead, to focus on the work necessary to secure lasting stability in housing, employment and more.
