Nonprofit Management Certification Program

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. Through training sessions taught by nonprofit experts, participants will have an opportunity to apply and practice new skills and gain confidence in decision making. 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!
