nonprofit management certificate

Provides a Solid Foundation in Nonprofit Operations

The Nonprofit Management Certificate Program, sponsored by Atmos Energy, is a cohort of seven full-day sessions that provide in-depth instruction on the key components of the operations of a nonprofit.

As a cohort, students learn together what it takes to operate a nonprofit organization in a rapidly changing environment. A mix of theory and practice, the certificate program covers governing, leading and managing, resource acquisition, outcomes evaluation, risk management and legal, and marketing.

Our instructors come from varied business and educational background with track records of success in their respective fields and areas of expertise.

Session Overview:

  1. Understanding the Nonprofit Sector, Organization and Strategic Planning
  2. Program Planning and Evaluation
  3. Human Resources and Volunteer Management
  4. Financial Management
  5. Fund Development
  6. Risk Management and Nonprofit Legal
  7. Branding, Marketing and PR

To gain the most out of the cohort model, it is encouraged that participants attend all the sessions within the cohort for which you are registering. However, we know this is not always possible and some allowances can be made for completing the cohort and receiving your certificate.

The first session is required as it sets the stage and tone for the course. Should you miss a subsequent session(s), you have 1 year to make up any sessions missed. Please note that you will not receive your certificate until you have completed all 7 sessions.
