Graduate Certificate in Fundraising and Development
Nonprofit organizations across the United States are dependent on educated and skilled fundraisers. According to the National Center for Charitable Statistics there are more than 1.5 million registered nonprofit organizations – nearly all dependent on raising contributed income through fundraising efforts. Educational institutions, health, human services, relief agencies, arts and religious organizations are all reliant on donated funds to serve their beneficiaries, therefore, knowledgeable fundraisers are needed to direct these efforts. Competition for fundraising has resulted in a strong job market and created a greater need for skilled and educated fundraisers.
The Graduate Certificate in Fundraising and Development is designed to provide critical fundraising education to those who are currently working or seeking employment in nonprofit organizations.
