​Who We Are

San Diegans from all walks of life are proud of our inclusive, innovative and flourishing community. We value our visionary leadership as a region and are committed to preserving our quality of life by meeting community needs through education, training and research. Yet gaps in knowledge, training, connections and resources among community leaders and organizations can make them less effective and competitive, leaving the community with gaps in service.

Founded in 2002, The Nonprofit Institute provides education, training and research to strengthen organizations that help meet community needs. Together, we can lead the way to protect our quality of life and continue to promote thriving communities by educating and engaging leaders, creating smart connections, engaging philanthropy and providing diverse perspectives and innovative solutions to our region for all future generations.
