Valued Alliance Partner

A partnership with the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance offers great talent development and recruitment solutions for your organization.

It is also a great way to build your leadership bench. In fact, independent research from LinkedIn shows that the Alliance’s Certified Nonprofit Professionals (CNPs) are 7x more likely than their peers to reach leadership level or higher! The Alliance is building the nonprofit workforce pipeline with qualified candidates ready to work for you. 

Our Nonprofit Workforce Partners choose to be part of the Alliance network for many reasons. It might be to access free or discounted professional development for their staff and volunteers. Others do it to have exclusive access to the diverse and talented students who are completing the CNP Program — they make great interns, employees and board members! Regardless of the reason, the list of benefits is long!

Levels of Partnership

We offer two different partnership levels: one is for Independent Partners and the other is for National Workforce Partners. Although the benefits are similar, the National Workforce Partner level extends many of the organizations benefits to your entire network of affiliates/members. 

Independent Partner Fee

  • $250— Partners with operating budgets below $2 million
  • $500— Partners with operating budgets above $2 million

National Nonprofit Partner Fee

  • This fee ranges from $3,000-$25,000, based on your organization’s operating budget and number of local affiliates or members.

  • The Nonprofit Leadership Alliance follows internship best practices as outlined by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). Please read the criteria for internships below.

    To ensure that an experience—whether it is a traditional internship or one conducted remotely or virtually—is educational, and thus eligible to be considered a legitimate internship by the NACE definition, all the following criteria must be met:

    1) The experience must be an extension of the classroom. This is a learning experience that provides the student an opportunity to apply knowledge gained in the classroom to an internship. It must not be simply to advance the operations of the employer or be the work that a regular employee would routinely perform.

    2) The skills or knowledge learned must be transferable to other employment settings.

    3) The experience has a defined beginning and end, and a job description with desired qualifications.

    4) There are clearly defined learning objectives/goals related to the professional goals of the student’s academic coursework.

    5) There is supervision by a professional with expertise and educational and/or professional background in the field of the experience.

    6) There is routine feedback by the experienced supervisor.

  • Does your organization agree to meet this criteria for all internships submitted for Alliance students?
