Certificate in Nonprofit Fundraising – early bird applications close
Learn to apply fundraising methods and theory so your organization (and your career!) can thrive.
The Certificate in Nonprofit Fundraising, offered in partnership with Portland State University, is the only comprehensive fundraising certification program in Oregon. If you’re seeking a holistic understanding of philanthropy and the core functions of a development professional, you’re in the right place.
Who it’s for: Current nonprofit staff looking to level up. Mid-career professionals looking to enter the nonprofit sector. Anyone looking to hone their fundraising skills.
The Certificate in Nonprofit Fundraising accelerates the fundraising learning curve, compressing knowledge you would normally gather over many years on the job into a mix of classroom and practicum learning that is complete in less than one year.
Over ten months, you’ll gain a deep understanding of each phase of the fundraising process: from identifying and qualifying donors, through “the ask,” and onto stewardship for long-term support.
You’ll leave the program well prepared to level up fundraising at your organization or launch a successful career in the nonprofit sector.
More than 100 professionals have graduated from this program and gone on to leadership positions at Oregon Community Foundation, Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon (APANO), Community Warehouse, and many other nonprofits.
