Nonprofit Essentials: Development & Finance Scenario Planning

Nonprofit Essentials is a 12-week course, designed for new, small-budget and/or small-staffed nonprofits. This course builds capacity fundamentals in 4 core strategic areas: Development, Finance, Communications and Board/HR. Each section includes 3 weeks of virtual group learning and 1 week of technical assistance coaching. Each section is taught by an industry leader and local champion of this work and course materials are designed to be easily implemented within organizations. The cost of the program is $200 for GPNP members and 250 for non GPNP members.

In addition to course materials and sessions, all students also have access to individual executive coaching sessions with ACCEL alumni and co-teachers. New this year, students will receive The Forbes Funds’ 2021 digital badge in Fundraising & Development Scenario Planning upon completion of the program.  

Classes are held virtually on Tuesdays from 12 to 1 pm. Classes begin on April 20th and end on August 10th.

The course is taught by Derrick Feldmann, FocusCFO, Dr. Hannah Karolak, and Volu2. If you have any questions or would like to talk more about this course please feel free to contact Dr. Hannah.
