“I used to view grant proposals and the grant writing process as an intimidating prospect — something I was interested in but had no idea how to begin. This certificate program made it so much easier to understand and gave us the chance to apply what we learned in a practical way. I now feel much more confident about grant writing and excited to help write a grant for my organization starting next week. That is only possible thanks to the Nonprofit Leadership Center.” Nonprofit leader
