Practice leadership. Create change. 

The Institute for Nonprofit Practice transforms 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.


INML is now Institute for Nonprofit Practice

We recently changed our name from Institute for Nonprofit Management and Leadership to Institute for Nonprofit Practice in order to better reflect our organizational maturity and highlight what makes us distinct. We chose this name and developed the associated brand with the involvement of dozens of alumni, students, board members, and community members. More than ever, we are focused on expanding our impact and lending dignity, credibility, and visibility to the important work taking place in our field.
