National Leadership Institute (NLI), a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, was founded to help nonprofit boards become a truly strategic asset to the leadership and organization they support. Frequently nonprofits have boards with unquestionable passion for the mission, and strong corporate experience, but little experience in actual nonprofit board governance. NLI is dedicated to helping boards, the staff and the organization work together to learn how to effectively and efficiently collaborate. Strategically focusing board members' strengths means the nonprofit can have a much greater impact on those they serve.
We provide world class, highly experienced faculty and consulting at a price nonprofits can truly afford. Our faculty delivers a powerful combination of corporate board experience combined with intense nonprofit expertise. NLI believes in running a nonprofit like a strategic, successful business, so more energy, passion, and funding gets to the actual mission. We can assist with governance training, board and staff evaluations, board retreats, strategic planning, facilitation, leadership development, fundraising and more. NLI is also a provider of the highly researched "Cause Selling" curriculum developed by Sanford Institute of Philanthropy.
NLI’s founder and chairman Gerry Czarnecki is a sought after national consultant with an unbridled passion for giving back to the nonprofit world. He has authored seven books and spoken at conferences all across the U.S.
