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 35 years of experience at the forefront in helping organizations 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.

Special Announcements

What's the talk in your nonprofit these days?

There are a lot of words our nonprofit clients have been using lately to describe their current state of mind in today's political climate: stressed, anxious, concerned, tentative, watchful, uncertain. While we don't claim to have solutions to all the issues floating around, we do have proven methods that have been helping nonprofits deal with challenging, turbulent conditions for more than 35 years. There are strategies that can be relied upon to help protect your organization to improve sustainability and outlook. If you're feeling cornered, a look at our website, outlining the many services that have seen thousands of nonprofits through the most difficult of times, can get you started in the right direction.

Here's what's worked for 35 years.
