Make an impact in your community by investing in nonprofit leaders.

Your gift helps strengthen nonprofits that add to the quality of life in the Fox Valley. By supporting NPLI, you are building better community leaders!


Improve our community through investing in local nonprofit leaders!

Join other community-minded partners in creating a healthy and resilient region where nonprofit leaders and organizations have access to the resources they need and are equipped with the skills that enable them to make our community a great place to live for all.

Help strengthen our community by:

  • Investing in the Nonprofit Leadership Institute, a nine month, cohort based training, to help nonprofit leaders develop skills required to manage effective organizations. Graduates receive a Nonprofit Management Certificate from Fox Valley Technical College.
  • Providing access to resources, trainings, and networking opportunities, so nonprofits can learn best practices through the Leadership Forum, Nonprofit Next, and Board Support programs.

Testimonial from Leadership Forum participant:

"The NPLI Leadership Forums have been invaluable in my growth as an Executive Director. The diversity of topics has enhanced my knowledge of marketing, fund development, human resources, financial management, governance, and other areas previously learned on-the-job. I also value the relationships that have developed from networking with other nonprofit leaders." ~ Mary Parsons, Executive Director, LEAVEN
