NONPROFITS AND SOCIAL IMPACT

The MISSION of the American Nonprofit Academy is to bring education, leadership, connectivity and collaboration to the community of nonprofits and social impact organizations.

The VISION of the American Nonprofit Academy is to educate and connect stakeholders in nonprofit and socially impactful organizations with low cost educational opportunities. This includes the involvement of staff, founders, funders, donors, volunteers, social investors, corporate partners and government.

The VALUES of the American Nonprofit Academy orient communities towards building sustainable approaches to philanthropy. Education, connectivity and collaboration are the key values that move the American Nonprofit Academy towards its goals.

OUR SOCIAL VENTURE STORY

The story of the American Nonprofit Academy is the story of the new social ventures in America.  We come from a variety of places and backgrounds and believe each day can be better than the last.

We know America is a place where a Community Organizer can stand as tall as a corporate CEO. We live in a country gifted with the ability to both make money and make a difference. We get out of bed in the morning with a to-do list filled with people not products.  Even more so, we are grateful to be surrounded by social entrepreneurs and socially impactful leaders who are enlightened with purpose.

The American nonprofit community is one of the few remaining arenas where thinking outside the box is encouraged and rewarded.  It is a community where doing what has not been done before, or what can be done better, is a valid goal.

We will admit our platform won’t hold all the answers to every problem a social impact organization encounters, nor can we tell you where all the needs and opportunities exist.  However, we can be one of the tools for your journey.  By serving as a platform for providing and connecting you with the expertise and support you may need, we hope the American Nonprofit Academy will become one of your sources for knowledge, encouragement and success.

This community news and learning platform is constructed to match the complex variety of nonprofit missions.  We have experts from mission specific fields who bring their talent, view and history to our menu of free training.   Gain strength from our Wisdom of Champions by hearing from those who have traveled your path or are experts in your unique field.  Our National news , Local news and Foundation news sections give you the big picture of our country’s social sector.  Keeping up on the actions of your peers, donors, volunteers, clients and even competitors is very important as you journey along and we further encourage you to join us daily on the Live national broadcast of The Nonprofit Show.

We understand your success is measured more by how many mouths you feed, families you help, lives you save and not by how much money you make.  Yours is a purposeful life.   It requires compassion, creativity and commitment. Because of this, we honor and take the responsibility of providing learning and connecting seriously.

We hope you will find the American Nonprofit Academy valuable and always appreciate your feedback to make it better.

Stay well so you can do well…
