In January 2022, 23 Outer Banks nonprofit leaders will take part in the Duke University Nonprofit Management Intensive Track Program. This eight-session, virtual program explores key areas of nonprofit management through courses taught by instructors who are established practitioners and scholars from a variety of disciplines within the nonprofit arena. Participants are able to complete the requirement for the Duke Certificate in Nonprofit Management through this offering, which has been made possible by Outer Banks Community Foundation donors.
Courses include these areas of nonprofit management: Nonprofit Organizations: Board Development and Governance, Grantwriting/Fundraising, Planning and Evaluation, Integrating Social Enterprise, Employment Law, Human Resource Development, Financial Management and Sustainable Strategic Planning. Participants are given the opportunity to discuss their own challenges and pose questions to the group in their search for knowledge and guidance.
Registered participants have been awarded grants to each receive $1,500 Community Foundation scholarships, reducing their costs to $500 per student. The 2022 class is at capacity; registration is now closed.
“These courses are designed to impart practical, critical skills for nonprofit leaders,” said Community Foundation President and CEO Chris Sawin. “We applaud this class of local nonprofit leaders for making the investment to learn and grow through this offering, and we are grateful to donors to our Community Fund for making this program possible.”
The Community Fund is the largest and broadest grant-making fund at Outer Banks Community Foundation, and is behind all of the grants, scholarships, and other services and programs it affords. Contributions are most gratefully welcomed to this fund, or any of the more than 200 funds held at the Community Foundation; click here to donate online, or call us at 252-261-8839 if you have questions about making a gift.
