About the Certificate

The Hannah Grimes Center is thrilled to offer the Nonprofit Management Certificate in partnership with the Marlboro College Graduate School and the Center for New Leadership (CNL). The Certificate, a program of CNL, is a 10-week program designed to teach nonprofit leaders the skills you need to strengthen your nonprofit organization and better achieve your mission.

Students in the Nonprofit Management Program are active practitioners and leaders in Northern New England’s vibrant nonprofit community. Learning takes place in day-long, face-to-face intensives, and continues outside of class in the online portal.

With generous support from the AD Henderson Foundation, the TD Charitable Fund, and C&S Wholesale Grocers, scholarships are also available to participants.
