Welcome to the Nonprofit Center

The Nonprofit Center at La Salle University is in the business of nonprofits. Our name isn't just who we are, it's what we do. With more than 30 years of experience at the forefront in helping organizations throughout the Greater Philadelphia region strengthen themselves, their boards and their staffs, we recognize that all nonprofits must be able to implement and maintain strong and ethical business practices, in order to thrive in today's competitive and complex world. We work in partnership with:
  • Nonprofit Executive Directors, Staff and Volunteers
  • Nonprofit Boards of Directors
  • Businesses that Value the Role Nonprofits Play in our Community
We provide diverse, integrated services in education, consulting and leadership development, rooted in best practices in nonprofit management, governance and operation, while respecting and understanding the unique nonprofit culture.
