About Us

Stanford Nonprofits is a network of student leaders, local nonprofit board members, educators, and professors--all with the goal of producing the next generation of nonprofit leaders.

Within the next four years, at least three out of four Executive Directors will leave their jobs, and half of current younger leaders plan to leave the nonprofit sector altogether. Given these statistics, there will be a significant deficit of leadership in the nonprofit sector within the next decade...unless we act now.

Our Mission and Vision

Our mission is simple: to inspire, train, and mentor future public service leaders at Stanford University. Our vision is clear: to foster an undergraduate community of socially minded leaders with the knowledge and experience to create real social change.


Stanford Nonprofits is now accepting applications for our Board Fellows Program for the 2010-2011 school year.
