  • One- and two-day courses taught through the Academy for Nonprofit Excellence on all kinds of helpful topics. 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 120 professionals who have earned a Certificate in Nonprofit Management. Request to join the Academy's enewsletter to be the first to know about upcoming classes.
  • Building Excellence program. This program started in 2008 has already provided 21 area nonprofits with ongoing technical expertise to help them develop and implement long-range fundraising plans. There are two nonprofits in the midst of ongoing training with The Curtis Group while past participants meet quarterly for updates and special training. Previous participants are listed below. Applications are not currently being accepted for new participants.
