Give to the ASU Lodestar Center

Become part of this exciting enterprise. Accelerate social impact when you help us educate, empower and connect nonprofit leaders.

America's nonprofit and philanthropic organizations are essential social institutions. But they are only as effective as the individuals who serve in leadership and management roles. By educating, empowering and connecting nonprofit and philanthropic leaders, the ASU Lodestar Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Innovation enhances the quality of life in our communities. Your support funds research, scholarships, convenings, training and tools to elevate the nonprofit and philanthropic sector.

We build the capacity of the social sector by enhancing the effectiveness of those who lead, manage and support nonprofit and philanthropic organizations. Your gift will expand educational and professional development opportunities for the nonprofit community; build a pipeline of diverse nonprofit leaders; fund critical research on the nonprofit and philanthropic sector; and help nonprofits find innovative solutions to the challenges faced throughout society.

Give today

Support the nonprofit leaders of tomorrow. Give today to the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance Student Association.

Nonprofit organizations are champions of the common good. With a partner like you, emerging social-impact leaders in the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance at ASU can take advantage of professional development opportunities like the Alliance Management Institute, the capstone experience of their pursuit of the Certified Nonprofit Professional credential. Your donation will strengthen the social sector from the inside out.

According to NLA’s research, Certified Nonprofit Professionals stay in the nonprofit sector 50% longer and are seven times more likely to rise to director-level than nonprofit professionals who have not earned this certification. Our students envision change and take action as the next generation of nonprofit leaders. Your investment will help them achieve the CNP credential, entering the nonprofit sector better prepared and more motivated than ever to change the world for the better.
