Revenue Development & Fundraising Certificate

Asking for money can be hard; ensuring that you have the money necessary to provide your programs and services is essential to helping the people counting on you. The Revenue Development & Fundraising Certificate is comprised of three core classes and three electives, giving time for each participant to truly explore the elements of fundraising in depth. Through a cohort model, nonprofit development professionals will build a connected community with a culture of learning and feedback. Participants will learn best practices in the field, and walk away with a fundraising plan ready for implementation.
