Nonprofit Management Certificate Program

Helping individuals increase their nonprofit organization’s sustainability.

About the Program

San Antonio Area Foundation Nonprofit Management Certificate Program – Offered Twice a Year

Taught by subject matter experts, this program covers an array of essential topics for the nonprofit leader: board governance, development, leadership, organizational health, financial oversight, volunteer management and social media. This 36-contact hour program can be completed in just under two months and culminates in a certificate of completion.

New this year – access to a community board to facilitate peer learning and resource sharing between sessions.

Interested in a specific topic? Prefer not to sign-up for the entire program? You can enroll in individual classes, too.

Who Should Attend?

This certificate program is open to all staff members, board members and volunteers who want to learn more about managing a nonprofit as well as for those interested in transitioning to the nonprofit sector.

The program is offered virtually in the Spring.

Certificate Programs

The San Antonio Area Foundation encourages life-long learning and provides certificate programs that help individuals increase their nonprofit organization’s sustainability.

After a brief hiatus, we have re-tooled and are bringing back our certificate programs. You can now earn a certificate in Nonprofit Management, Fundraising or Grant Writing from the Area Foundation. And, bonus, you can earn a certificate in far less time!

Classes are still offered individually for those interested in enrolling in classes to build skills in a specific area without enrolling in a certificate program.
