“I registered for the Nonprofit Management Certificate program to stay current on best practices and sharpen skills that would help me guide nonprofits through these most challenging times.  After 25 years directing nonprofit projects and organizations I wondered if La Salle’s program could offer me new approaches that could be readily applied in my current and future positions. What I experienced was consistent, enlightening information and insight, delivered by seasoned professionals, and supported by real-world examples and case studies. I believe my colleagues would benefit from digging out of the trenches of our collective good work long enough to refresh the skills that will help them not just endure these times, but come out the other side stronger.”
-Linda Helm Kraph, Executive Director, Printmaking Center of NJ

“Coming out of the retail world, I knew very little about nonprofit management.  The wealth of knowledge that the instructors at The Nonprofit Center provided helped get Deputy Dog (service dog training) started and really has been critical to our decision-making along the way.”
-Mark Stieber, Executive Director, Main Line Deputy Dog
