The Summit was a great success!
Please check back to see what our next steps will be.


The Non Profit Development Center of Southern New Jersey (NPDCSNJ), in collaboration with more than a dozen supporting organizations, will host a Regional Summit for leaders of non-profit organizations in the eight counties of South Jersey.

Participants will discuss how to build a collaborative infrastructure that will position South Jersey to become the most NPO-friendly region in the country by 2030.


Summit participants will:
• Identify the needs of NPOs in the region,
• Ask NPO and other community leaders to present their “best ideas” for promoting the
work of NPOs in the region,
• Share success stories from NPOs across the region, and
• Identify new or borrowed approaches to meeting these goals.

The Summit will be preceded by a survey of NPO leaders as well as a series of county-wide planning and information-gathering events.


The Summit will be both in-person and online and will take place on Tuesday, April 26, 2022 at Rowan University.


Sponsorship opportunities include:

• Platinum: $20,000

• Gold: $10,000

• Silver: $5,000

• Bronze: $2,500

• Patrons: $1,000 to $2,499

• Friends: $500 / $250

Sponsorship support is not category-exclusive.

As a part of the preparation for the Summit, NPDCSNJ is soliciting papers on topics of interest to NPO leaders, staff members, volunteers, and supporters. If you have a “white paper,” podcast or webcast script, or other material that you have prepared and would like to share it, NPDC would be glad to include it in the digital archive of the Summit. We have already received two Master’s Theses—on the need for robust digital fundraising by NPOs and on how NPOs should market to Millenials and Gen Z. We would be happy to add any original work that is submitted and approved by NPDCSNJ.
