The agency is an initiative of Richard Brewster. Richard's vision is of nonprofits and associations that enhance the power of civil society for good.  

The mission of Nonprofit Leadership is to help people in nonprofits and associations, whatever their role, to lead, manage and participate in achieving their missions. 

He achieves this by working with the people in nonprofits who are in a position to lead - CEOs and Executive Directors, he members of their teams, and Boards and their officers and individual members. He helps them develop strategies, organize the work of their work and mobilize and lead board members, other volunteers and staff members in ways that increase the impact of their and their nonprofit's or association's work.
