What We Do

Our mission at Nonprofit Learning Point is to provide high quality, affordable professional and leadership development for the nonprofit community of the greater Richmond region.


We believe that there is no shortage of diverse talent in the nonprofit sector and that all levels of staff, volunteers, and board members, deserve to continuously grow and transform through meaningful learning opportunities. We ensure quality programming through adherence to the guidelines of the Nonprofit Academic Centers Council, support and guidance from our expert Curriculum Committee and community partners, and by using curriculum grounded in the latest research. We are also in the process of pursuing our Standards for Excellence accreditation. Further, the program assesses quality and effectiveness through continuous evaluation and community needs assessment.

The Nonprofit Learning Point staff includes two full time staff and one leadership lead faculty member. We contract with eleven skilled leadership coaches who have experience working for nonprofits. We also contract with over thirty faculty with expertise in their fields, experience in the nonprofit sector, and who continuously revise their curriculum based on the most current best practices. Dozens of talented professionals volunteer their time through committee work, providing critical guidance to the program and its curriculum. We are proud of the caliber of our staff, instructors, and leadership.

For 20 years, Nonprofit Learning Point has provided relevant, high quality, and affordable learning opportunities designed to respond to the specific needs of the Richmond nonprofit community.
