The Business of Making a Difference Starts Here
Invest in future social sector leaders
With the increasing interdependence of the sectors comes a need to equip the next generation of leaders with the skills to effectively drive impact in diverse situations.
Our graduates learn how to successfully adapt both innovative and established methods to drive change across sectors. Their accomplishments build on Berkeley’s rich tradition of social impact around the globe.
Your investment in the Center is maximized in both the short and long-term. Social sector organizations benefit today from participating in our programs and Haas graduates go on to lead global social change initiatives.

Question the Status Quo
Research initiatives increase the knowledge base of the sector:
- Multi-Sector Leadership explores the careers of 2000 to executives to analyze how cross-sector experiences shape leadership skills.
- Networked Nonprofits studies organizations that leverage the power of organizational networks to achieve impact at levels beyond what they can do on their own.
- Volunteerism in Ethnic Communities explores the ways in which view and engage in volunteerism, as well as the motivations and preferences of volunteers from ethnic communities.
- The Nonprofit Sector's Impact on Jobs and the Economy looks at how the economic output of the nonprofit sector affects the broader national economy.
