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.

Board members who attended left with a deeper appreciation of their role and a sense of the possibility as they began to absorb the need for evolutions which will have a lasting impact on the organization as well as themselves as individuals.” -Trish Wellenbach, President and CEO, Please Touch Museum
