Add Yale to the list. You should be competitive for schools like Yale, Darden, Duke. Maybe take a look at Ross as well. I would say even choose one of Kellogg or Tuck as "stretch" schools (if your GMAT was 740+ to balance out your so-so GPA, you would be competitive for schools like Kellogg).

As for backups, look into Georgetown.

Yale is one of the most reputable schools for non-profit/social enterprise, and has deep historical roots (including a strong and big alumni base) of folks in that sector - probably more than any other b-school.
