About The Nonprofit Center

With 30 years of experience at the forefront in helping nonprofit organizations throughout the Delaware Valley strengthen themselves, their boards and their staffs, The Nonprofit Center at La Salle University's School of Business recognizes that all nonprofits -- no matter how admirable their mission -- must be able to implement and maintain strong business practices in order to compete in today's competitive and complex world.  We are called a management service organization, providing services to nonprofits that are grounded in best practices in nonprofit management, governance and operation.   

This jobsite was created to help ensure that the region's nonprofits have access to the best talent available to help them fulfill their missions.  It also underscores our commitment to excellence in nonprofit leadership by making connections between individuals who wish to serve as board members and volunteers and the organizations who value this service.
