We started the academy in 2005 in partnership with Tidewater Community College and continue to underwrite it to keep costs low -- $60 to $85 per class. The academy regularly brings experts to teach about board development, communications, fundraising, human resources, legal issues and other key nonprofit topics. Take enough courses and you can join the more than 100 professionals who have earned a Certificate in Nonprofit Management.
