Nonprofit Certificate Program

Nonprofit Certificate Program 2020-2021 Description

Strengthen ND’s Nonprofit Certificate Program was established to meet the capacity building needs of nonprofit professionals and volunteers. The intent of the Nonprofit Certificate Program is to provide an opportunity for nonprofit professionals and volunteers to learn the basics of nonprofit management through six structured, online sessions.


Strengthen ND leverages the expertise of experienced nonprofit professionals to facilitate program sessions featuring topics of nonprofit management, including board governance, finance, human resources, grantseeking and grant writing, marketing and public relations, fundraising, and strategic planning. The Nonprofit Certificate Program will meet once per month via Zoom from 9:00 a.m. to noon for six months beginning October 7th, 2020. The program is limited to 15 participants per year.  The cost to attend the certificate program is $300, which provides resources for six informative sessions.
