Why they chose us

Feedback From Our Clients

I highly recommend Nonprofit HR. Our board was faced with an extremely difficult situation with our CEO of 45 years suddenly announcing his retirement. Nonprofit HR streamlined the process for us, brought outstanding candidates for our search committee to interview, and our search lead was always available for any and all questions and kept us on track throughout the process. We now have our new CEO who we believe will take our organization to the next level! We had an absolutely incredible experience.
