Refunds must be requested in writing and received at least two business days prior to the scheduled program (see more details below).

Payments and Invoices

All payments must be made in full at least two business days prior to the class.  If you are unable to do so, you must contact the finance director at 215-951-1705 or you will not be registered for the class.   Checks or money orders should be payable to “The Nonprofit Center.” When registering by mail, please indicate the name of the attendee on the payment and attach the completed registration form.  Failure to pay in this timely fashion will make your organization ineligible to participate in or receive any Nonprofit Center services.

Certificate Discount Packages

A package price has been created for each of our Certificates, to provide additional savings to students who wish to plan and schedule their educational experience.  Only members (at any level) are eligible for this discounted package price and you must register and pay for all classes at once.  Coupons will be issued for cancellations.

Registration Cancellation

Refunds will be given only when requested in writing  to The Nonprofit Center at least two business days prior to the class.  Unless otherwise requested, credit coupons will be issued for all cancellations.  All refunds will be charged a $10 processing fee, which will be deducted from the refund.

If you cancel before 48 hours prior to the class, you may send another participant from your organization or receive a credit coupon. If you cancel fewer than 48 hours prior, or fail to attend, you will be considered a “no show” and are responsible for payment, since we have held space for you at our expense. If you cancel your participation in more than two programs in an academic year, we reserve the right to issue a credit in lieu of a refund.  Send cancellation requests to:

The Nonprofit Center at La Salle University
1900 W. Olney Ave.

Cancellations are acknowledged upon receipt.
