Dear Danville-Pittsylvania-Caswell County and Martinsville-Henry County Nonprofits:
Are you a nonprofit staff manager or Board member looking to sharpen your skills in areas such as fundraising, grant writing and volunteer management? Successful, well-managed nonprofits are critical to this area′s progress. High quality professional development can add to the capacity of nonprofits. As a complement to the many nonprofit course offerings available in our region, the Danville Regional Foundation and the Harvest Foundation are partnering with the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research (IALR) to offer the Duke Nonprofit Management Intensive Track. This partnership will also allow these world-class offerings, which normally costs $1,650, to be brought to our region for a fraction of the cost. This eight sessions/two week program explores eight essential areas of nonprofit management through courses taught by instructors who are established practitioners and scholars within the nonprofit arena. Participants are given the opportunity to discuss their challenges and pose questions to the group in search of guidance.
The Duke Nonprofit Management Program was created two decades ago to address the sustainability and impact of nonprofit workers and volunteers through accessible training and community-based networking with over 2,500 certificates issued to date. The Program provides accessible, affordable, and practical training that prepares those in the nonprofit sector with tools to strengthen the communities they reach. It integrates Duke University′s commitment to research and academic excellence with the practical wisdom of the instructors and the realistic work experience of the participants. The Program offers courses, retreats, customized training, and certificates for nonprofit staff and volunteers and draws participants from across the country.
The Nonprofit Management Intensive Track will be offered at the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research (IALR), Danville, VA, and class size for the Track is limited to thirty (30). Registration is required for session participation and will be accessible only through the Foundations websites. There will be a fee of $250 for the Intensive Track, and registration is first come, first served. Limit your organization’s representation to no more than two individuals, ideally one staff member and one board member. Participants in the Intensive Track should have previous coursework in nonprofit management and have significant nonprofit experience. Participants must work or live in Caswell County, NC, Pittsylvania and Henry Counties, or the Cities of Danville and Martinsville, VA. Session descriptions and professor bios are listed below. Participants who successfully complete the Intensive Track will earn the Duke University Certificate in Nonprofit Management.
