Diversity Task Force

The Diversity Task Force's Mission is to create a diverse and inclusive environment for Nonprofit Resources and our clients.

The Nonprofit Resources (NPR) Diversity Task Force has been established to develop resources and action steps for our company, clients, and network to put words into action. We are proud of the growing diversity within our team and our client organizations.

To achieve our mission of “helping nonprofits succeed”, the Diversity Task Force aims to leverage our diverse backgrounds and experiences to establish a framework for organizational culture and examine diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in our policies, procedures, and practices. It is our commitment, at every stage of organizational growth, to continue these aforementioned diversity efforts and articulate our Core Values.

The nature of Association Management Companies is to “fix it”. We roll up our sleeves and face challenges every day in support of our clients as they push their missions forward.
