Introductory Nonprofit Certificate

Nonprofits make a difference in their community through strong missions centered on the people they serve. However, even while being mission-driven, nonprofits depend on effective strategic direction and require many of the same skills used in traditional business organizations. The Introductory Nonprofit Certificate is a self-paced online program that cultivates the skills successful nonprofit professionals need. From budgeting and fundraising to leadership, social media and grant writing, our program has something to offer anyone interested in nonprofit work.

Single courses may be taken without the pursuit of the certificate.
