CNPE Fundraising School, Fall Classes

Enroll in fall classes in our School for Fundraising & Engagement

The Center for Nonprofit Excellence has just announced the lineup of fall classes for its School for Fundraising and Engagement. Whatever your fundraising experience, we are offering one or more classes you can take to deepen and sharpen your skills.


In October: Four sessions to help nonprofit board members become better leaders
Board table Every Thursday afternoon in October, 25 fortunate nonprofit board members will learn from Ed Cortas, our Director of Con­sulting and a seasoned expert in guid­ing nonprofits to excel. In four 90-minute sessions, Ed will give new (or newish) directors the foundational information they need to fully appreciate the special role nonprofit board members play in advancing their organizations’ missions. The four sessions will emphasize (1) Board 101 (nuts and bolts and DEI); (2) Vision, Mission, Values, and Strategy; (3) Finances and Fund­raising; and (4) Building Effective Boards. The cost is $149 for CNPE members and $199 for nonmembers. It could be the best CNPE event you attend this year. Details and registration here.
