Social Media Communications Certification

A three-month series of focused, in-depth sessions will culminate in earning a Nonprofit Social Media Communications certificate. 


The San Antonio Area Foundation, in partnership with H-E-B School of Business and Administration at the University of the Incarnate Word, offers a professional, non-academic certification for nonprofit professionals or volunteers with a focus on social media communications and analytics. This exclusive certification program will give nonprofits the tools necessary to develop, implement, and assess strategic social media campaigns. The sessions are designed to explore the intersection between social media and predictive analytics as it applies to nonprofits.

Cost: $495.00

This three-month series of six sessions is designed to enhance a nonprofit's skills in social media communications and predictive analytics.


The Social Media Certification will not take place for the spring of 2017. Fall sessions will begin in August 2017 and culminate in October 2017.
The program includes 24 total hours. Participants who complete at least 20 hours will earn the certification. The certification program is limited to 35 participants.

Workshops are held at the Area Foundation office and classes are led by teaching faculty from the University of the Incarnate Word. Each session will offer an educational topic pertinent to social media and communications with a goal of developing organizational capacity and effectiveness. Classes will be a combination of didactic presentation of core competencies, discussion of specific issues and challenges that nonprofits face related to social media and an interactive project based on the learning objectives for that class.
