Nonprofit Management

At the School of Professional & Continuing Studies, we’re dedicated to enhancing the skill sets of those in the nonprofit sector. Through the Institute on Philanthropy (IOP), we offer a focused approach to nonprofit fundraising, marketing and communications, and management. While distinct from our graduate Nonprofit Studies program, both are tailored to empower professionals to excel in nonprofit organizations and NGOs, whether in the Richmond region or globally.

Our courses dive deep into key areas such as fund development, grant writing, leadership development, nonprofit sustainability, and communications. We also shed light on planned giving strategies to ensure the longevity of an organization's mission.

In every course, we intertwine the foundational elements of a liberal arts education, emphasizing values such as care, excellence, and innovation. This approach ensures that our students not only master their chosen field but also advocate for sustainable growth and impactful management in the nonprofit sector.
