“Essentials of Business for Nonprofit Organizations” is a series of nine courses covering a range of topics essential to the governance and management of nonprofits. Classes are taught primarily by Wake Forest faculty and administrators and are open to the community.

“The Wake Forest University motto is Pro Humanitate, which means ‘for humanity.’ The core of our mission is to teach passionate leaders who are dedicated to sharing their knowledge and talents to serve humanity,” said Steve Virgil, Director of the Wake Forest University Institute for Public Engagement.

Sessions will be offered monthly from September to June of the following year, with a break in January. Courses include: Human Resources, Fund Development, Collaboration, Evaluation, Advocacy and Communication, and Leadership Lessons for Nonprofits. Students have two years to complete all nine sessions. After finishing all sessions, participants will receive a certificate of completion from Wake Forest University.

Individual courses cost $75. Participants can register for all nine classes for $575. Scholarships are available courtesy of our corporate partners Duke Energy and Foundation for the Carolinas.
