The agency is an initiative of Richard Brewster. Richard's vision is of nonprofits that measurably enhance the power of civil society and deliver social justice.  

The mission of Nonprofit Leadership is to help people who work in nonprofits and associations, whatever their role, to be effective leaders. 

He works with the people in nonprofits who are in a position to lead - CEOs and Executive Directors, other staff members, and Boards and their officers and individual members. He helps them understand how and why they, their staff, board members and other volunteers and their organizations  behave and function as they do. And he then guides and empowers them to make improvements and develop strategies that bring about the changes they want  and that will increase the impact of their and their nonprofit's or association's work.
