Leading Experts. World-class Curriculum. Designed by you.

CNM is partnering with nationally recognized fundraising consulting firm, M. Gale & Associates, to offer this innovative new Fundraising Certificate program for busy nonprofit professionals. This fully customizable certificate program gives you the opportunity to design your own course of study by selecting the seminars that help you meet your career goals while working within your schedule.

CNM has curated a course catalog of public seminars  covering the topics that experts view as critical for fundraising success.  You must choose and attend six of these sessions to earn your certification.  CFRE credits are available for each course. 

All participants will have the opportunity to attend an “Invitation Only” event to celebrate completion of this new program and network with other program participants.
