Unique nonprofit training programs offered through 2014 include: Developing a Strategic Plan for Your Nonprofit Organization, Oct 15; Nonprofit Organization Development and Analysis, Oct. 29; Program Performance Measurement and Evaluation for Nonprofits, Nov. 12; Financial Management within the Nonprofit Sector, Dec. 3-4; and Fundraising and Revenue Development for Nonprofits: Parts 1 & 2.

Area professionals currently are earning Professional Certificates in Nonprofit Management within two years. Participants first complete 18 six-hour core workshops offered in key competency areas – human resources development, oversight and ethics, planning and programming economics, and finances and external relations. The final requirement is completing a four-hour capstone session.

As a recent graduate of the nonprofit certificate program, Chris Korjenek, executive director of the NAIOP Commercial Real Estate Development Association, Wisconsin chapter, has reached out to peers in her industry to recommend the program to them.

“I have many friends who sit on different boards for nonprofits or not-for-profits and I ask them, ‘Do you know about the UWM nonprofit management certificate? If you don’t, ask your executive directors of the boards that you’re on if they know about it. If they don’t, I strongly encourage them to consider the program.”

"Mini-certificates" are awarded upon request confirming completion of any of the five major competency areas. For more details, visit
