Our Story

We created the Nonprofit Learning Center because we believe in the power of nonprofits. We want to make sure that the people leading and serving nonprofits have what they need to succeed. We know that different members of our sector need different kinds of learning opportunities based on their role and why they are learning in the first place. The Nonprofit Learning Center provides one stop learning for nonprofit staff, board, consultants, and trainers.

Nancy and Meps have worked together since the early 2000’s, when we met volunteering for a program serving Afro-Brazilian women in Salvador, Brazil. Through experiences like these, we have seen firsthand the power of the nonprofit and public sector to strengthen our communities.

We’ve collaborated on dozens of projects that involve creative solutions for the nonprofit sector. We use research-based, proven adult learning practices to help people connect with knowledge and change the way they do things.

We edit and curate carefully, because we know you’re busy. We deliver our materials using a combination of words, images, and multimedia, so you can process the information in the way that works best for you.
