“I am very happy that I enrolled in your Nonprofit Management Certificate program. I feel [it} was more concise than other programs would have been; it was taught by seasoned professionals who are highly respected in their fields, and offered a great value for the money. Having entered the nonprofit world only two years ago, with no real knowledge of how they work, the program helped me to understand more about how nonprofits operate (or should operate) to be successful. The instructors were engaging and provided personal experiences that added to the subject matter of each course. I want to thank Laura Otten and her team of instructors for a great experience. I can’t wait to take another program!”
Terri Galaro, Finance/Development Assistant, Princeton Area Community Foundation

“After 25 years directing nonprofit projects and organizations I wondered if {The Nonprofit Center’s} program could offer me new approaches that could be readily applied in my current and future positions. What I experienced was consistent, enlightening information and insight, delivered by seasoned professionals, and supported by real-world examples and case studies. I believe my colleagues would benefit from digging out of the trenches of our collective good work long enough to refresh the skills that will help them not just endure these times, but come out the other side stronger.”
-Linda Helm Kraph, Executive Director, Printmaking Center of NJ

“Coming out of the retail world, I knew very little about nonprofit management.  The wealth of knowledge that the instructors at The Nonprofit Center provided helped get Deputy Dog (service dog training) started and really has been critical to our decision-making along the way.”
-Mark Stieber, Executive Director, Main Line Deputy Dog
