To empower nonprofits and social enterprises to transform their leadership and management and accelerate positive social change.

Our Vision

We envision a thriving community of nonprofit leaders and social innovators committed to organizational excellence and a shared vision for a better world. 

Our History

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization originally created as part of Support Centers of America, an international network of management support organizations. In 2012, we joined forces with Partnership in Philanthropy to become one dynamic organization – Support Center | Partnership in Philanthropy with offices in New York and New Jersey.

While the majority of our work is in the Greater New York/New Jersey/Connecticut tri-state area, our work does extend beyond the region, nationally and internationally.
