Nonprofit Management

The Institute on Philanthropy realizes that good management is vital to a nonprofit’s sustainability. Sustainability is built on three important tenants:

  • being financially sound;
  • having strong leadership; and
  • making measurable impact on mission.

We support nonprofit professionals in growing their capacity of skills and knowledge in order to create sustainable nonprofits.

IOP seeks to assist prospective and current nonprofit leaders to create and support sustainable nonprofits throughout Central Virginia and beyond. Our Nonprofit Management programs include the Nonprofit Leadership Lab and the new Nonprofit Financial Management program.

Nonprofit Financial Management

Our new Nonprofit Financial Management program concentrates on the strategic nature of finance. Participants will learn how to plan more purposefully for the financial security and sustainability of your nonprofit organization.

IOP Nonprofit Leadership Lab

The annual IOP Nonprofit Leadership Lab provides nonprofit CEOs and senior management opportunities to work with a small group of like-minded nonprofit leaders, to grow in knowledge of their strengths, and to approach organizational challenges in a group setting. The goal of the Leadership Lab is to grow strong leadership skills.

Join 7 senior leaders & CEO's for a redesigned 4 or 7 month program called Nonprofit Leadership Labs. Power players in the central Virginia nonprofit sector will meet for 2.5 hour session each month (or twice a month based on the choice of the group to shorten the program). Participants will learn from one another by discussing the issues that face each individual leader and the nonprofit they serve. Leadership Lab groups use various techniques, among them coaching, brainstorming, peer accountability and support. This is a mini LAB structure, and not a lecture format. This is an investment into yourself, each other, and the community. You must be at a senior level or CEO of your organization to participate.
