A professional development solution just for nonprofits.

Merit is an anytime, anywhere microlearning platform just for nonprofit teams. Learners enjoy 28 learning paths, 84 badges, interactive digital workbooks, personal learning plans, an online community, and tons of support.

And leaders can tap into team reporting, capacity assessment, and custom content hosting... building a culture of learning in a time- and budget-friendly way.

Measurably grow your team's capacity anytime, anywhere.

Carving out time for professional development can be tough. Our on-demand learning platform offers on-the-go microlearning in lessons available in video, audio, written, and closed-caption formatting...most of which can be completed in 12 minutes or less.

And during the course of a year with Merit, you can enjoy a benchmarking nonprofit capacity assessment (see sample report here) to show where your organization stands across 27 key functional areas, and where you've improved while using Merit.

How does Merit work?

  • After enrollment, every team member (including part-timers, newbies, interns...everyone!) can access the Merit modules on any web-enabled device, any time. These modules include short, engaging lessons presented via video, audio, transcript, and closed caption content.

  • As learners progress through the material they are awarded bronze, silver, and gold digital badges to recognize progress. Each learner creates their own digital workbook which culminates in a personal learning plan.

  • Each organization can tap into robust reporting to celebrate engagement. Nonprofits in our platinum level can also post their own learning content and have a custom landing page.
