Practice Leadership. Create Change.

The Institute for Nonprofit Practice’s mission is to transform communities by equipping the most promising nonprofit leaders with the skills, confidence, and resources they need to make their organizations effective, innovative, and sustainable. 



We are affiliated with Tufts University's Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life, which grants certificates for our programs.
