History of Nonprofit and Philanthropy Good Practice / NPGoodpractice.org

Nonprofit and Philanthropy Good Practice or NPGoodpractice.org is a project of Nonprofit Services at the Johnson Center for Philanthropy. NPGoodpractice.org was created in 2002 with funding from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation as a one-stop shop for widely accepted and innovative nonprofit practices. Nonprofit leaders can access hands-on tips, articles and profiled links and apply them to their organizations. In 2010, the site was redesigned with interactive features. Visitors to NPGoodpractice.org come from all 50 states and over 140 countries. 

Nonprofit Services at the Johnson Center for Philanthropy is named for the Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow Foundation. The foundation supports the Johnson Center's tradition of providing resources and education to leaders of nonprofit organizations.

The Johnson Center at Grand Valley State University began in 1992 as a multidisciplinary university-wide center, developed with the support of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. With a strong focus on community service and the use of data in the decision-making process, we are dedicated to the study and teaching of philanthropy, volunteerism, and nonprofit management.
