2020 changed us. The way we learn.  The way we communicate.  The way we engage. 

We are students studying nonprofit leadership and management at a time when the world needs changemakers.  

Join the upswell by contributing to our goal of $18,000 by November 18th and support OUR generation of leaders. 


We have an extraordinary opportunity as Certified Nonprofit Professional students to build the next normal. Our communities will thrive when we thrive. We will be ready.  But, we need your help. 

  • Your campaign donations will pave the way for 100 future nonprofit leaders to pursue the national Certified Nonprofit Professional credential through the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance without the burden of additional fees.  

  • We will also send 11 students to the Independent Sector’s Upswell virtual convening to engage with professionals on the front lines for social justice and COVID-19 recovery. 


The Nonprofit Leadership Alliance Student Association (NLASA) - formerly known as American Humanics - is a group of dedicated and passionate students actively pursuing their nationally recognized Certified Nonprofit Professional (CNP) credential. Our program at Arizona State University is one of the most well-respected affiliated CNP programs in the country. 

Through the disruption, we are strong. 

Like the phoenix, WE ARE RISING!

The Legacy

In honor of the 41st annual campaign lead by the students of the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance at ASU, you will continue this long and proud legacy! Fantastic!


The Future

The Certified Nonprofit Professional (CNP) credential is the preferred national certification for those entering the social sector. $100 covers the credentialling fee for one future nonprofit professional. Outstanding!


The Rising Tide

Pay the $197 registration cost for one student to attend the Upswell Conference powered by the Independent Sector. Fabulous!


The Movement

$500 will cover the national Certified Nonprofit Professional credentialling fees for 5 future students. This could be the next Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Communications Director, Program Director, and Education Director of your favorite nonprofit organization. What a dream team!


The Upswell

A donation of $1,100 will cover the national CNP credentialing fees for all 11 students participating in the campaign. This means 11 Certified Nonprofit Professionals working to make our world better. Incredible!
