UW-Green Bay Certificate Program Aims to Strengthen Nonprofit Leaders

Posted on 7-25-2022

Nonprofit organizations play a vital role in communities, addressing needs that are often underserved. Yet, leading a nonprofit requires a different skillset than leading a for-profit company.

UW-Green Bay’s Nonprofit Leadership Certificate can provide tools and actionable approaches essential for nonprofit success.

“Our communities are impacted by hundreds of nonprofits,” says Lora Warner, Associate Professor and Director of the Center for Public Affairs at UW-Green Bay. Warner teaches in the Public Administration program and leads the Nonprofit Management Certificate. “These nonprofits service populations of great need, which makes it all the more important that ongoing training is provided for new and developing staff.”

The Nonprofit Leadership Certificate was shaped by an advisory board of engaged nonprofit leaders in Northeast Wisconsin, and is designed for early career and volunteer nonprofit individuals, as well as middle managers looking for more responsibility. The certificate is particularly relevant to individuals transitioning from for-profit businesses.

Essential courses include:

Building a Strong Fund Development Program
Developing an Active Board of Directors
Foundations of Financial Management
Human Resource Management
Marketing and Communication Strategy

The first class starts August 19th, 2022, and registration is open now.
