|In an effort to best serve and support all of our nonprofit colleagues, The Community Foundation Serving Richmond and Central Virginia will be looking for new ways to support and recognize all of our nonprofit organizations and staff members and their professional development. To this end, the current iteration of the 120 Hour Certificate in Nonprofit Management will end June 30, 2017. This change will allow us to bring together the right people to plan and design the best possible learning and recognition opportunities going forward.
To support all individuals who are working towards earning the certificate, here are some key pieces of information to know:
· The 2017 Calendar of Classes is available now for registration.
