On-Site Education

Building Skills and Competency for Staff, Board, Volunteers, Associations & Membership Groups – Delivered to your Door

The Nonprofit Center can work with you to tailor any educational program or Certificate Program to fit your unique organization, staff, volunteers, board, membership or association. We bring the education on-site to accommodate your scheduling needs and budgetary restrictions. Limited subsidies may also be available to support this effort.

These on-site classes are a great time saver when multiple individuals or groups need to enhance their skills and bring the added advantage of a team-building shared capacity-building experience. We can also create a customized package of related programs, including credentialed certificate programs.

The range of topics for On-Site Education is as varied as the nonprofit sector is itself, and includes most of the courses offered in our annual Education Guide. Other popular subjects include:

  • A wide range of Human Resources topics, such as being a new supervisor, employee performance management, interpersonal skills and communications, harassment in the workplace, diversity, employee benefits, managing change, effective teamwork and problem-solving/decision making
  • Fundraising, including planned giving and endowments, case studies and feasibility studies
  • Volunteer management and other programs
  • Financial management, asset management and business planning
  • Board of Directors leadership advancement, such as: best practices in board governance, resource development, board recruitment and retention, and financial management as well as coaching
  • Strategic planning
  • Marketing
