Our Impact

Furthering your mission is our mission.

Together we empower the nonprofit sector to solve the most important and urgent issues facing our communities. At Nonprofits First, collaborative impact is achieved through our Community Circle — diverse yet connected missions and partners working together to foster the greater good and wellbeing of all, from our environments and systems to the people and living things they sustain.

Setting the Standard

The nonprofit profession looks to us daily for solutions that guide and strengthen mission operations. Two important areas of focus enable our member organizations to succeed:

  • Accreditation. Nonprofits First’s exclusive process builds the foundation for organizational achievement and sustainability.
  • Leadership Development. Our expert programs equip both rising and senior level staff to lead growth and improve outcomes within their agencies and across the sector.
