Welcome to the NGO Learning Website 




Gregory Cohen created this website to share resources he has identified for his organizational development, career counseling and training work.  The pages Everything But Money: Fundraising For Nonprofit Ventures and Ethics For Nonprofits also supplement Greg's other trainings through Cause Effective and elsewhere.  Those job hunting in the nonprofit sector may find useful resources on the Greg Cohen's Nonprofit Job Search Resources page.


Greg advises a wide variety of nonprofit organizations through his company, NGO Consulting, Inc. and, for 13 years, as Associate Director at Cause Effective. He has driven the creation of 11 start-up nonprofits.  He was an advisor on organizational advancement to NPOKI, a collaboration of global health organizations which seek a shared performance management system for tracking outcomes from their programs worldwide. He has also consulted to InsideNGO, the trade association of operations staff of US-based NGOs. He was the founder of Comprehensive Development, Inc., a nonprofit associated with Manhattan Comprehensive Night & Day High School. CDI provides supports to 800 students a year, using over 200 volunteers. He left CDI, which had a budget of $1 million, nearly all from private sources, and a staff of 25, with a new multiyear contract for $1.2 million annually with the NYC Department of Education, in part a result of a 15 site replication throughout New York of the CDI-school partnership. This partnership has been the focus of a front page story in the New York Times and a special edition of PBS'NOW With Bill Moyers.


Previously, Greg ran the housing development program at the New York Urban Coalition for 13 years, where he created over 270 units of  housing financed by over $27 million.  These projects included permanent housing for survivors of domestic violence and CATCH a nonprofit which converts foreclosed apartments into tenant cooperatives.


Greg is a certified trainer in nonprofit ethics by the Institute for Global Ethics.  He also advised the Institute on their plan to expand to schools nationwide.   He has been a Guest Instructor on "Fundraising For New Nonprofit Ventures" at NYU’s Wagner Graduate School of Public Service since 2000. 


He served on the board of the Nonprofit New York (NPCC) for 20 years and was a participant in Coro's Leadership NY II. He holds a BA from Union College. He lives with his wife and, to his delight, close to two adult daughters in Brooklyn.
