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 in the Greater Philadelphia region and beyond 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

The Nonprofit Center Gives you the Tools

"From introductions to foundation representatives at a 'Meet the Funders' panel, to ways to amplify the message on our mission at a branding class, The Nonprofit Center opens the door to a range of resources. The professional development opportunities provide practical, timely, and, in some cases, eye-opening expert guidance on ways to deepen donor relationships. I always come away from the classes with a well-defined to-do list that refines our fundraising efforts. To state the obvious: we are in a highly competitive environment for dollars/donors. Essentially every nonprofit is in the business of improving the community; each using different means to achieve this same end. The Nonprofit Center hands us the tools to best leverage what is unique to our work." -Ellen Saint Clair, Director of Development, Children's Village
