We were founded with one goal in mind: to strengthen the social impact sector by strengthening its people.

What We Do

Nonprofit HR is the country’s leading and oldest firm focused exclusively on the talent management needs of the social sector, including nonprofits, associations, social enterprises and other mission-driven organizations. We focus our consulting efforts on the following practice areas:

As defined by the Social Enterprise Alliance, a social enterprise “is an organization created for impact. It uses a sustainable and earned income business model with a governing structure focused on stated social or environmental goals. It invests a significant portion of its revenue, profit or assets into expanding this stated mission.” To learn more about the work we are doing with social enterprises, click here.

Nonprofit HR also offers customized learning and development in addition to research and events, all with the objective of strengthening the people management capacity of the workforce.

Nonprofit HR was listed as one of the nation’s fastest growing firms by Inc. 5000. Since 2000, our staff of credentialed experts have advanced the impact of some of the world’s most influential brands in the sector.

Your organization is only as effective as your people.
