Join the 2017–2018 Professional Certificate in Nonprofit Fundraising cohort!
This transformational program accelerates the learning curve for individuals wanting to grow and expand their fundraising skills—compressing knowledge they would normally gather over several years on the job into a mix of classroom and practicum learning that is complete in less than one year.

Over 9 months, gain an end-to-end understanding of each phase of the fundraising process. From identifying and qualifying donors, through "the ask," and on to stewardship of the relationship for long-term support.

Participants graduate as stronger, more impactful professionals for their organization or ready to enter the nonprofit arena for those seeking a career transition.

Come to one of the upcoming Open House & Information Sessions!
May 23 — June 28 — July 12 — August 10
4:00–5:30 pm
