    The Fundraising Leadership Series provides development professionals with essential leadership skills to be a strategic leader in their organization. The unique design of this certificate series, co-created with nonprofit leaders, recognizes the central role of development in a nonprofit’s culture, strategy, and communications. Over the course of 8 weeks, participants will engage with other development professionals in an interactive program that builds their capacity as organizational leaders and changemakers.

    Beginning October 15, development professionals will embark on a 6 session, 8-week journey.

The Fundraising Leadership Series equips participants with essential leadership tools like:

    – GEMBA Walks

    – Storytelling

    Upon completion, development professionals will have applied experience in their organization’s context with critical leadership tools. Additionally, they will exhibit the capacity to better lead strategic development operations in nonprofit organizations.
