We call them “Show Me How” materials, because everything we offer is based on step-by-step actions that you can do.

The Nonprofit Board Certificate Course

You have decided to serve your community through board service. Now take time to understand the job so you and your colleagues can serve well. The Nonprofit Board Certificate Course gives you practical information and a popular 24-page workbook to keep track of your ideas.

Intended for board and staff members, the Let’s Talk Money online course in Nonprofit Finance Basics will get everyone up to speed and on the same page when it comes to nonprofit finance.
