Welcome To NLI

At NLI, we know most nonprofits are born from a sincere desire to help. That passionate concern is critical to an organization’s success. But passion alone is just not enough. You need powerful leadership, strong governance, and streamlined strategy. We can help. And our services are affordable for every nonprofit budget.

NLI has a team of superior experts and coaches with decades of experience both personally working on boards, as well as training boards and community leaders. Our experts have worked with some of the smallest to some of the largest nonprofit, non-governmental organizations.

After watching so many of those organizations sadly fall short of their goals, our founder’s vision was to create an organization dedicated to furthering leadership and governance at all levels of the nonprofit sector. We believe that best practices encouraged in the for-profit world have equally powerful application in the nonprofit environment. That means nonprofits should run like a successful business!
