Nonprofit Management Certification: Fundamental

Designed for leaders of nonprofits who want to receive practical knowledge on how to run a nonprofit and make a bigger impact in the community. The Nonprofit Management Certification Program helps nonprofit managers develop leadership and supervisory skills to advance their career and be more effective in their current positions.

The program also provides a confidential setting to discuss challenges and network with other community leaders. To establish a setting with potential for networking and rapport, registration is limited.

  • 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!
