Organizational Background

Supporting Long Island nonprofit leadership.

The Center for Nonprofit Leadership began as a grassroots effort to address leadership transition and development in nonprofit organizations on Long Island. A group of concerned nonprofit leaders met monthly for a year to seek solutions to these leadership challenges. This group included representatives from the Long Island Community Foundation, the Rauch Foundation, United Way of Long Island and the dean and associate dean of the School of Social Work at Adelphi University, as well as executive directors of nonprofit organizations.

With their support, a Long Island Nonprofit Leadership Summit was held at Adelphi as a first step in responding to the needs of the nonprofit community. This full-day event attracted nearly 300 nonprofit professionals and board members.

The creation of the Center for Nonprofit Leadership grew out of their resounding consensus in favor of a Long Island-based resource that would provide help and guidance in dealing with leadership transitions, board leadership and leadership development.
