The NonProfit Training
people think about nonprofit organizations, they think of art
museums and symphonies. Some think of large national or
international public charities that have become recognized
institutions. Others think of small community groups offering
job training programs or soup kitchens feeding the homeless.
NonProfit Training Institute (NPTI), we think of all of these.
We also think of the Underground Railroad and the Civil Rights
Movement. And we think of churches, schools and
people--organizing to assist the elderly, the young and the
handicapped. Then we think of people walking out into their
communities and, along with seeing needs, they see a vision of
how they might work to address those needs. Then they help
others to see the vision and become inspired to join them in the
work. From joblessness to hopelessness, from economic
development to social outreach, and from health care to elderly
care, the Nonprofit Training Institute serves the needs of
committed visionaries who dream of making a positive impact on
the problems in their communities. NPTI works to make dreams
become a reality. The visionaries start with a vision and a
commitment to give birth to a missionary endeavor. We hold
their hands and help them deliver.
The Mission of
the NonProfit Training Institute is to promote excellence in the
establishment and continued survival of viable community
organizations. NPTI accomplishes this by providing technical
assistance and training for emerging, new and established
nonprofits and by advocating the adoption of professional ethics
and standards for community organizations. In addition, NPTI
encourages volunteerism and sponsorship for the most worthy

Dear Mrs. Johnson-Ramsey:
brief letter cannot begin to express all of the
knowledge and depth that you have
brought to Youth Quake Team Atlanta through your
NPTI training courses. I wanted to write
personally, along with the Board of Directors,
to let you know that it has been one of the best
choices we have made as a non-profit.
We were able to
benefit from two of your institute’s programs.
First, the full-day 501(c)(3)
training which perfectly laid out the steps and
requirements for obtaining this exempt status
legally. You also included information about
maintaining the status in integrity. We were,
of course, able to obtain the status very
shortly afterward using the forms we completed
during the coursework.
connection came through your more extensive and
well organized 12-week
Community Organization Leadership Training.
Obtaining this certification, after the very
detailed and relative weekly homework
assignments, was a highlight of our existence as
organization. We were pretty well established
in terms of scope and vision, but it was
that you were able to handle both new-comers to
the non-profit arena and veterans in the
same setting. Our board members who attended
were also impressed with the pertinent
information you provided and the challenges you
made to excel at what we do.
If by chance anyone
reads this letter of thanks, please know that it
is from the heart of our
youth-serving agency and that, if you are
considering any program flowing from the halls
of the Non-Profit Training Institute, you will
not regret participating in NPTI training.
