Welcome to The Nonprofit Center

The Nonprofit Center at La Salle University is in the business of nonprofits. Our name is our mission; it's what we do. With nearly 40 years of experience at the forefront of helping organizations in the Greater Philadelphia region and beyond to 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 CSR and the Role Nonprofits Play in our Community
Our diverse, integrated services in nonprofit education, consulting and leadership development, are rooted in best practices and immersed in the unique nonprofit culture.

Moving Forward: The Post Covid-19 Resiliency Series

Moving Forward: The Post Covid-19 Resiliency Series is The Nonprofit Center’s recovery package for nonprofits. We are continuing what we do right to support the nonprofit sector in restoring and continuing what it does so well. We’ve all been changed by a global event that also has had profound local impact. By combining the factors that have traditionally defined us with the ability to pivot and adapt, we will emerge and continue to fulfill our missions. To help in this process, we have created a series of videos (ranging in length from 15 to 45 minutes) in the key areas of communications, finance, fundraising, human resources, and organizational structure.
