This fundraising certificate program, offered by Humboldt State University's Office of eLearning and Extended Education, is focused on meeting the needs of small to mid-sized rural nonprofits. Beginning this year all courses will be offered online!

These online courses will help participants develop a more comprehensive view of nonprofit fundraising, explore principles of fundraising, case statements, fundraising strategies, donor development and engagement, annual campaigns, major gift campaigns, and special events.

This program has been registered and approved by Certified Fund Raising Executives International (CFRE) and each course qualifies for 8 CEUs (32 for all four courses) that can be used toward initial certification and recertification for the CFRE credential, the global standard for the fundraising profession.
