The purpose of the paper is to present findings from a national online survey of 800 nonprofit and philanthropic professionals about their professional development needs. We will report statistically significant comparison findings between staff working in nonprofit organizations and staff working in grantmaking organizations. This paper is the first study that attempts to determine if there is a difference between nonprofit and grantmaking staff professional development preferences and can be useful in informing organizational professional development planning and implementation.
