The Technical Assistance Resources Program allows local nonprofit organizations to receive quality products that are created by expert faculty-led student teams. Read more about our applied projects in the recent report: Applied Projects Organizational Impact Report For the Nonprofit Leadership and Management Graduate Program.
FREE PRODUCTS include the creation or revision of corporate by-laws, personnel policies, volunteer manuals, board manuals, fundraising plans, financial management systems plans and information technology plans.

The funding we receive is used to underwrite program scholarships. If you are interested in this option, please fill out one of the
