Our History

Founded in 2006 to help South Jersey’s non profit organizations continue to do good…but do it even better, this historically all-volunteer service organization is dedicated to enhancing the work of the region’s 10,000+ nonprofits and their leaders through technical assistance, information-sharing, education, celebrations, and networking.

Accredited as a 501 (c) (3) organization by the IRS, NPDC has served more than 2,500 of the region’s NPO professionals and recognized more than 60 of the region‘s top NPO leaders and organizations at its annual Awards Dinner.

In addition, the organization and eight of its volunteer leaders have been cited by former President Barack Obama with the President’s Volunteer Service Award.

“We do everything for the region’s NPOs…except write the checks.” And we even do that occasionally—when we present small stipends to our annual award winners, in recognition of their outstanding service to the community.
