Philanthropy and Resource Development
Philanthropy is the lifeblood that keeps any nonprofit healthy and able to drive social change. The philanthropy and resource development program will expand your fundraising knowledge and skills so you can make your organization strong and sustainable. Whether launching a Kickstarter campaign or pursuing a legacy gift, you'll learn how to cultivate donors and manage relations, leverage philanthropic trends and technology, and develop effective fundraising activities. Gain insight into how to scale and plan initiatives that develop the resources to carry out your nonprofit's mission.
The nonprofit sector is projected to grow in the coming years, and every nonprofit organization needs professionals who can create and maintain a strong culture of giving. You can earn your MS in nonprofit leadership with a concentration in philanthropy and resource development or your graduate certificate entirely online or in the evenings on campus through University College. Beyond the courses in your concentration, you can choose from a range of electives related to nonprofit leadership, including social entrepreneurship, grant writing, and funding arts and culture programs.
