“When I started the Nonprofit Management Certificate program seven months ago, I thought it would take a very long time to transition out of corporate America into the nonprofit sector. I’m happy to say I was just offered (and accepted) a position with a local nonprofit organization. I credit each of my CNM Connect instructors with exposing me to the many and varied challenges that this sector faces so that I could confidently discuss them during the interview process. I feel like I have a jump start on becoming a real contributor for my new organization. Thank you for helping me launch a new phase of my life.”Gina Gentile

“The Nonprofit Management Certificate Program is a gem, and an opportunity for growth you won’t find anywhere else. I attended the sessions with a modest goal of learning a bit more about nonprofit management and our local nonprofit community. We have now implemented new internal controls in financial management, surveyed the board to identify skill gaps and are development a marketing plan to improve our communication strategy. I enjoyed the networking opportunities and now have connections with many other local nonprofits. This program exceeded my expectations and has proven to be a valuable resource to our organization.”Cindy Price
