How nonprofit professionals stay ahead of the curve when it comes to talent and culture.

Nonprofit HR is widely recognized as a leader in gathering data and developing talent management resources for nonprofit leaders and human resources professionals. From culture management to harassment prevention to diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives, we provide the guidance your organization needs to best support your people.


To better address the ever-increasing demand for knowledge that is unique to the nonprofit sector, we recently expanded our offerings including more real-time social sector data, more events and more professional learning opportunities for organizations. Our insights, events and data are developed and gathered with the specific needs of nonprofit organizations in mind.

Featured Insight: Habits of Highly Effective Nonprofit Leaders

What sets the effective nonprofit leaders apart from the rest? We have the answers.

We connected with high-performing nonprofit leaders from organizations like the National 4-H Council and the YWCA and asked them what makes them tick. Each leader had unique insights into key habits that help them lead effectively, which we synergized into four key themes.

The most effective leaders:

  1. Place a high value on education
  2. Empower others
  3. Embrace Change
  4. Leverage their networks

These are habits you can cultivate in yourself and in your most promising nonprofit employees.
