MSU and Strengthen ND establish Nonprofit Certificate Program

Strengthen ND and Minot State University’s Center for Extended Learning partnered to establish the Nonprofit Certificate Program to meet the capacity building needs of nonprofit professionals and volunteers.

Strengthen ND and Minot State will leverage the expertise of area professionals to facilitate program sessions featuring topics of nonprofit management, including board governance, finance ethics, human resources, grantseeking and grant-proposal writing, marketing and public relations, fundraising, strategic planning and action planning.  

“The intent of the Nonprofit Certificate Program is to provide an opportunity for nonprofit professionals and volunteers to learn the basics of nonprofit management,” remarked Megan Laudenschlager, Strengthen ND executive director. “We’re so excited to have Minot State’s Center for Extended Learning as a community partner to bring this accessible and quality program to Minot’s nonprofit sector.”

The Nonprofit Certificate Program will meet monthly from 8 a.m. to noon for six months beginning Oct. 5. The cost to attend is $300 per person, which includes all materials. To register, interested individuals can contact Laudenschlager at (701) 303-0840 or
