  • Because of our experience with The Nonprofit Partnership, our organization is committed to shared decisions and ready to build the board of the future.

  • Because of my experience with the Nonprofit Partnership, I have been able to find consultants with expertise in areas critical to move my organization to the next level. I am totally comfortable with anyone referred by the Partnership, knowing they have been thoroughly screened and that they have the skills necessary to do the job. I find that the certificate courses offered provide excellent training for new staff, which saves us time and resources. Finally, the countless networking opportunities are another great benefit and they strengthen the connections among nonprofit agencies in the Long Beach area. As Executive Director of our organization, the Partnership is the first place I call when I need guidance, professional expertise, reassurance, or all of the above!

  • I have gained so much knowledge from just attending three roundtables that I look forward to them every month. I am very thankful the roundtables exist, and I thank you for being such a great host!

  • Thanks to Nonprofit Partnership’s Fund Development Certificate Program I learned to reach back to a funder who had previously “declined” our application and invited him out to our facility. In the past I would not have thought to reach back to the Program Officer. Because of my class I came to understand that development is an education process and that “declined” is not outright rejection. The program officer visited our site and loved our program, “If only we had been out before you submitted!” The Program Officer is now our champion and is actively looking to see what other funding maybe possible from his foundation. Thank you!

  • Thanks to the help of the Nonprofit Partnership, our Board now knows their role in fundraising. They have eagerly implemented out Parish Outreach plan and have achieved substantial financial results to support our Catholic Charities programs.

  • What a luxury to have this great software available free here in Long Beach. We appreciated having the Nonprofit Partnership staff right there to help. We will pass the word along to others about being able to find sources for funding and support, and we hope to use these tools ourselves again and again.

About our Nonprofit Partnership Leadership Institute:

  • It is a superb investment! I learned so much and it has helped me tremendously in my work. I was part of the 2011 inaugural class and I’m still referring back to the resources I received.

About our Grantwriting Certificate Program:

  • We were successful in getting a large government grant of over $1 million. We had applied for the grant in the last cycle and did not receive any monies. What I learned in this class is directly responsible in our being funded this time.

About our Affinity Groups:

  • I have always learned so much by attending the Roundtables, and appreciate everything the Nonprofit Partnership and you do...I wanted to thank and share with you that the success of our fundraiser would not have been possible without all the resources you and the attendees of the roundtable provided me. You all have really been my teachers and mentors; before this year I knew nothing about development or nonprofit organizations.

From our Consulting Services:

  • We had a great experience with our Nonprofit Partnership Affiliate Consultant.Before even beginning we met with the Nonprofit Partnership staff and Affiliate Consultant to outline our needs and expectations. He came up with a tailor-made plan which included activities an d a timeline. His expertise and assistance was wonderful, it truly helped us move to the next level. He was a perfect match for our agency--just the right person to work with our group. He provided the "kick-start" to what our board needed to make things happen and he gave us confidence in our abilities.
