Nonprofit Management Certificate Program


Begins March 7, 2018
9:00 am - 4:30 pm

Equip yourself with the skills necessary to manage and improve a nonprofit organization's strategic future. 

Designed for the working nonprofit professional, in six intensive days over the course of six months, we will cover key nonprofit management topics, including: 

  • your leadership style and leading teams,  
  • sustainability and planning,   
  • governance and board development,  
  • resource development,
  • financial and human resource management, and
  • marketing and communications.

As part of this dynamic program, you will engage in:

  • peer learning,
  • one-on-one coaching, and
  • work on a Strategic Improvement Project to begin implementing your learning.

The trainings will be informative, hands-on/interactive, draw on real-life examples from participants, and incorporate group and peer learning activities.  Training participants will receive a Course Binder with learning materials that include resource information, worksheets and exercises, templates and samples.  

Leadership Project

You will receive individualized coaching and support in determining and developing your management project.  It must be actionable and relevant to the current situation, and involve sharing your vision, making your case for change, persuading others to join, and key steps and timeline.  Each leader will make a presentation to the class and receive supportive feedback on the final day of class.
