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.


Celebrating 10 Years of Leadership, Impact and Community. 

This spring, we celebrated the Institute’s 10th Anniversary with our most dedicated alumni, mentors, faculty, and supporters! The celebration included a performance by the Boston Children’s Chorus, powerful testimonials from our graduates, and inspiring remarks from Mauricio Lim Miller, recipient of the Barry Dym Champion for Change Award. This celebration showcased the best of the Institute while raising critical resources to support leaders tasked with solving the world’s most complex challenges. Thank you for helping us commemorate a decade of impact!
