Professional development is an important part of all livelihoods, and not always easy to navigate. Especially when there isn’t a line item in the budget. Here we provide information on how to access educational tools and supportive resources to help you grow as a nonprofit professional.
Here you’ll find book and podcast recommendations, software comparison charts, and other free resources.
Information and Research
You need to learn about something you don’t know anything about, understand, or just learned? Pass that over to us. Nonprofit professionals need to be experts in a range of topics as well as make decisions quickly and efficiently.
