A professional development solution just for nonprofits.

Nonprofits have unique needs and goals when it comes to training and cultivating their staff. Our all-in-one solution offers gamified learning paths for every team member to build their own abilities in core capacity areas.

And with snazzy reporting for your leadership, and personal learning plans for each staff member, you'll find team engagement at an all-time high.

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?

  • Most nonprofits begin with a capacity assessment to help focus team learning.

  • After enrollment, every team member 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 organization can tap into robust reporting to celebrate engagement through their own leaderboards, contests, and other incentive programs.
