What Attendees are saying...

Jane Stein

President, JPS Consulting, Norfolk, VA

"Anyone who volunteers or works for a nonprofit should go to a Nonprofit Institute. The day in Newport News was absolutely wonderful and we all walked away with new friends, new information, new skills and a renewed energy to move our organizations forward.  Thank you Leah and the Nonprofit Learning Lab.   Please come back again next year!"

Felicity Palmer

Development Manager, Executive Service Corps of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA

“The Nonprofit Institute is a truly “must-attend” event for nonprofit professionals! The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, and the opportunities for making authentic connections with other members of the nonprofit community were abundant. The speakers and workshop leaders were inspiring and the sessions were highly interactive, centered around practical, hands-on advice and wisdom on how to confront challenges and apply new strategies at your own organization. Kudos to the Nonprofit Learning Lab for bringing this wonderful event to the Los Angeles community.”

Roi Matalon

Founder & Executive Director, SLAM! Los Angeles, CA

"The Nonprofit Institute was a perfect opportunity for us to really deepen our knowledge of best practices in major gift fundraising. As the Founder and Executive Director, we have been expanding our major gifts program for some time and I was able to walk away with concrete and specific strategies to use. The Nonprofit Learning Lab also did a wonderful job of creating an opportunity and facilitated space to connect with colleagues new and old. I am glad that they brought this event to LA."

Account Executive, EveryAction

"The Nonprofit institutes are an exciting experience for nonprofit staff who want professional development. The facilitators are some of the best in their field, and I loved how we discussed a wide range of topics including building one on one donor relationships, prospecting and research to find new donors, and sharing your organization’s story online in new and exciting ways. For those of you who need a substantive, 202-level dive into strengthening your nonprofit, this is a great learning opportunity."

Ray Merenstein

President, RDM Communications, Inc. Denver, CO

“I have had the pleasure of both attending and presenting at the Nonprofit Learning Lab Institutes - one in Denver and one in Phoenix.  As an attendee, I was awestruck by the depth of expert content and the range of topics covered. My only struggle was not knowing which sessions to attend because they all seemed to be meaningful and worthwhile…I don’t always say that after decades in the nonprofit sector. So then, to be asked to present, was a true honor.  I’m hooked on the benefits of this great organization!”

Sarah Shirazi

Community Development Director, KGNU Community Radio, Denver, CO

"I highly recommend the Nonprofit Institute for any nonprofit professional that is looking to participate in stimulating workshops and network with nonprofit professionals in your state. The conference format is perfect for busy nonprofit professionals looking to fit professional development and networking hours in their hectic schedules. The speakers and workshop leaders were inspiring and the sessions were both hands on and practical. I especially enjoyed the fundraising related workshops.  The “Meet the Funders” workshop was a great opportunity to meet Program Officers and learn more about the decision making process from a funders perspective This is definitely one of the best conferences I’ve attended in a long time."
