2020 Nonprofit Management Intensive Track Program

Part of the "Duke University - Continuing Studies" Series

Are you a nonprofit Board member or staffer looking to sharpen your skills in areas such as fundraising, grant writing and volunteer management?

The Danville Regional Foundation is once again sponsoring the nonprofit training series offered through the Nonprofit Management Program, a unit of Duke University Office of Continuing Studies. There will be two courses of study to choose from: individual courses costing $35 per session or a two-week intensive certificate track that includes eight sessions for $250. These world-class offerings, which in full regularly cost nearly $1,850, are made available to the Dan River Region for a fraction of the cost.

The series will be offered at the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research and the class size for each session will be limited to fifteen (15). Registration is required and is accessible through www.drfonline.org with a list of classes offered along with course descriptions.

What do you need to know?

  • For the individual capacity building courses, you can sign up for one course or all courses. The fee for each session is $35.
  • If you register for all eight individual sessions, the cost is $250.
  • The intensive certificate track will be held March 30 - April 2, 2020 and June 1 - 4, 2020 at the Institute for Advanced Learning & Research in Danville. The total cost for all eight sessions is $250. 
  • Registration is first come, first serve.
  • Please limit your organization′s representation to no more than two individuals in any one course. Ideally one staff member and one board member.
  • Participants must work or live in Caswell County, NC, Pittsylvania County, VA, or the City of Danville.
  • Coursework may be applied towards the Duke University Certificate in Nonprofit Management.
