About Support Center and The LeadersTrust

Support Center is nonprofit capacity building organization created as part of an international network of management support organizations (Support Centers of America) originally established in 1971. We have been a trusted partner to nonprofits in the greater New York/New Jersey/Connecticut area for more than 30 years. Support Center specializes in organizational development, consulting and executive transition. Within the world of management support organizations, we are unique in our commitment to be a deeply engaged “partner” to the nonprofits with which we work. We take the long view in committing to help our partners and propose long-term navigational support for organizations
to ensure that our work leads to sustained change and success. We work in close collaboration with our clients, ensuring that the work is focused on accomplishing goals as we continuously assess progress and refine strategy as needed.

The LeadersTrust delivers long-term, high touch support that helps change makers lead boldly and dream big. We collaborate with foundations, organizations, and skilled consultants to invest in the inherent power of leaders to create a world that is loving, sustainable and just. We dream of a world that is loving, equitable, joyful and just that celebrates the interdependence and individuality of communities and allows people to be healthy, safe, and whole. We believe it is our duty to protect our planet, our democracy, and our people. Winning the transformative, structural changes we need requires a deep belief and investment in people, organizations, and their collective power.
