Requests for Proposals

Each year, the UNI Nonprofit Leadership Alliance partners with a local non-profit agency to assist with a year long, 500 hour community service project that is proposed by the non-profit agency and chosen by the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance student members.  Through the partnership, UNI students will work with your agency to help plan, develop, and implement a project throughout the academic year that your organization would like to accomplish but may not have the resources to do so on your own.

Right now, we are looking for a new partnership in the upcoming year for 2014-15!

Please complete our RFP form by April 30, 2014 in order to be considered for the partnership. The RFP form can be found here: NLA RFP Form 2014-2015

Request for Interns

There are Nonprofit Leadership Alliance students graduating each year.  As student’s approach graduation, they are required to complete semester-long internships at a nonprofit organization within the community.  It you are interested in having a Nonprofit Leadership Alliance student intern at your nonprofit organization or are looking for potential employees, please contact Julianne Gassman.
