Nonprofit Management 101
Nonprofits are complex organisms with many moving parts, all of which impact one another. To be successful, a person leading, managing or simply being in a nonprofit must first understand the purpose and function of each part and then understand how each influences—and is influenced by—the other parts. Lacking such understanding undermines chances of thriving and sustainability.
This class begins with a focus on mission and core values, the very hub of an organization; it then walks you through each part of the organism, such as fundraising, finance, human resources, marketing, programming, and more—explaining each’s role and function and how it impacts others. While every nonprofit employee needs to understand this, leaders at every level within a nonprofit must be able to juggle these various roles and responsibilities, always in the context of the pieces’ connectedness. As you learn about the different parts, you will be given opportunities for self-reflection that will allow you to identify those pieces of the whole where you feel skilled and comfortable and those where you need to strengthen your understanding and skills.
