Professional Development Programs

Our professional development programs are based on the needs of local 501(c)(3) nonprofits and are designed to equip nonprofit teams with the knowledge, skills, and networks necessary to fulfill their missions. 

All programs will be advertised through the Nonprofit Center’s mailing list and partner organizations. You can sign up for the mailing list HERE. Joining the mailing list will also ensure you receive notifications about new resources, requests for feedback (surveys), and more.

Workshops are open to all 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, but may have a cap on attendance. Cohort programs (3- to 6-month programs) require an application process. Specific details are provided when the programs are announced. 

Some programs will have minimal fees, but most are provided free-of-charge to 501(c)(3) organizations.


The Winter/Spring 2024 programs include the following.  Click on each program for specific details. 

Be sure to check out our partners’ programs, which we share in the Nonprofit News newsletter and through our email list.


Fundraising & Sustainability Cohort (October - December 2023)

The Nonprofit Center hosted its first cohort training program from October to December 2023. Ten organizations were selected from 26 applicants and could send up to three team members. They met both in-person and virtually and were offered two one-to-one coaching sessions. Each completed the program with a draft resource development plan.
