Certificate Application

Each of the Nonprofit Center’s Certificates (Nonprofit Management, Fundraising, and a Build-Your-Own Customized Certificate) requires nine or 10 courses in a recommended sequence to progressively build expertise.  You have up to three years to complete a Certificate, making it realistic for working professionals.  In addition to this real world professional education, you will also earn Continuing Education Units, as well as CFREs for development professionals. A perfect match for today’s competitive world, a Certificate from The Nonprofit Center offers skills, competency, confidence and credibility, without the expense and time commitment of a degree program.

“The Nonprofit Management Certificate was an excellent series that focused on high-level overviews of best practices that organizations should strive to achieve.  The program gave me many tools we can use to strengthen Via and reinforced practices already in place.  Each class was an interesting mix of nonprofit management, board directors and community members that provided for lively class discussions and varying perspectives on the sector.”
-Lisa Walkiewicz, Chief Operating Officer, Via of the Lehigh Valley
