The program is open to all.

“This is a very good example of a cross-campus, multi-disciplinary effort that connects to the non-Wake Forest community as well,” Professor Virgil says.

According to the program website, the course is ideal for participants who are:

  • Current and aspiring leaders of nonprofits (staff, board members, or volunteers)
  • Interested in forming a new nonprofit

The program cost is $250. (This does not include travel and lodging for those who choose to attend the two weekend sessions in-person.)

Certificates will be awarded through the Wake Forest University School of Divinity following completion of all sessions.

Registration is available here. For more information, contact Lance Henry, Certificate Program Assistant.

This program is possible thanks to the generous support of the Wake Forest University Provost’s Fund for Academic Innovation and the Jesse Ball DuPont Foundation.
