2016 Annual Report

The Institute for Nonprofit Practice - in affiliation with the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life at Tufts University - graduated 130 students from 100 organizations in 2016.

Studies show that investments in leadership development improve bottom-line financial performance, attract and retain talent, drive a performance culture and increase organizational agility, especially in challenging times. At the Institute for Nonprofit Practice, we provide our students with a strong foundation in the essentials of nonprofit management and leadership including governance, finance, fundraising and talent development—all of which are inherent in leading a high-performing organization. In turn, our graduates are better equipped to deliver on their organizations' many vital missions.

In 2015-2016, through our Core Certificate and Community Fellows programs, we educated 130 leaders and helped increase the impact of 100 organizations in our largest class to date. Over nine years we have gradated 800 managers and leaders who are changing their communities for the better.
