Mrs. Sonia White

Sonia White is Director of the Center for Nonprofit Management and Leadership at MSU and has always thrived on helping people.  She says, “I love getting to know my students and to share my expertise and knowledge with them.  I want to help my students be successful and learn the real-world, hands-on skills which will lead to that success.”

Sonia teaches the core classes required for the Nonprofit Management Minor and advanced nonprofit management classes, including grant-writing and fundraising.  She has over 10 years as a nonprofit consultant.  One of her areas of expertise is federal grant writing, and she has successfully written grants totaling over $20 million for nonprofits.  Sonia is a native Texan but has consulted and worked with nonprofits from all over the country.

Sonia emphasizes to prospective students, “The study of Nonprofit Management is exciting and interesting because it applies across so many fields of study, such as business, finance, accounting, health sciences, social sciences, communication, social work, arts & culture, environment, and animal welfare.”

Her hobbies include reading, binge-watching tv shows or movies, and spoiling her dogs and cats. One of her goals is to attend a baseball game in every Major League Baseball stadium in the U.S. and Canada – and she is over half-way there!
