Nonprofit Scholars

On demand learning, for in-demand professionals.


Netflix for Nonprofits

Nonprofit Scholars is an online learning community where current and aspiring nonprofit leaders can learn on demand with the support of experts and peers. 

Think of it like Netflix for nonprofits- you can watch each webinar as its released or binge watch when you have time.


Why Join Nonprofit Scholars?

Today's nonprofit leader is expected to be well-versed in everything from program evaluation, to finance, fundraising, risk management, and more- all while staying on top of the latest trends and research in a rapidly changing field. 

Webinars are great, but oftentimes the information is too generic to be useful and facilitators only have a few minutes to answer questions. 

If you've ever jumped on webinar after webinar to learn success strategies and foundational concepts, then you know- this system simply doesn't work. 

Within Nonprofit Scholars, we'll dive deep into single topics and you can ask as many questions as you like- no time limit here! Most importantly, you'll join a community of experts and peers who can help you implement what you've learned.



Every Monday, you'll receive a new 20-minute webinar in your member portal. 


Share your thoughts and questions with a supportive online community of peers and experts.

Get Answers.

Join monthly Q + A sessions where we'll answer questions you've submitted as well as common questions raised within the online community.

Meet Your Guide

Hi there! My name is Sheela and I help nonprofit talent transform into exceptional leaders. Having worked in the nonprofit field for 12 years and counting, my experience runs the gamut from grassroots to multi-million dollar nonprofit organizations.

Now, I want to leverage my expertise in nonprofit administration and fundraising to arm you with the tools you need to run a successful nonprofit.

I created Nonprofit Scholars because, while webinars abound in our sector, there is little opportunity to learn how to implement what we've learned. Knowledge is only useful when we know how to apply it. As a scholar, you'll learn more than you ever thought possible, apply what you've learned, and make a real impact in your community.

With the right knowledge and support you can confidently lead your organization and make an incredible impact.
