Membership to OKCNP has been a great investment for our organization! Among my favorite membership perks include real relationships with nonprofit professionals both on the OKCNP staff and with other nonprofit organizations around the state. When you need advice, it’s comforting to know you’re not alone and to be connected with such a rich community of knowledgeable people.
Thanks to all of your staff for the training and experience you offer to raise the level of competence and confidence in the nonprofit sector. I've learned a great deal in your classes and hope to apply these lessons in the nonprofit sector.
I am a huge fan of the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits. As an agency covering 46 counties in Oklahoma, I’m pleased that the OKCNP understands nonprofit challenges across the state, and not just Tulsa and Oklahoma City.
We’re a brand new foundation starting from scratch. We’re learning a lot of things. I’m sitting in here with a class of people who’ve been doing this for a long time. So, we’re drinking from a fire hose and having a good time.
Membership in the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits has been an incredible investment into our own organization. Having an advocate in our corner who knows the nonprofit sector allows us to know that we can move forward with confidence.
You don’t know what you don’t know, and I wanted to learn in the right environment with the Nonprofit Management Certification Program. I didn't want to have that oh gosh we've got a problem environment.
I liked the networking in the Tulsa class for Nonprofit Management Certification Program with people I would not normally have the opportunity to mingle. So, the flexibility to float between the 2 cohorts in OKC and Tulsa is great!
"The training was very informative, very well-rounded. I liked that they added in workshops. So, not only were they telling you what could be the best for you to do, but they helped you to figure out how to tailor it for your organization."
"I've taken several trainings at OKCNP since becoming a member -- Annual Fund Campaign, Funders Forum, Standards for Excellence, and The Partnership -- we've really taken advantage of our membership, because we want to professionalize our foundation so it has a forward-facing transparency for our donors."
"One of the best things about the training is it breaks everything down into fundamentals. So, if you are a brand new person, just now starting, it gives you the basics for that. If you are experienced and have been working in the area before, you are growing your skills."
