Upcoming Training Program for South Dakota Nonprofits:

Applications are now being accepted for the second cohort in the South Dakota Nonprofit Capacity Building Program. 

The South Dakota Nonprofit Capacity Building Program joins the forces of The Fund Raising School at Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy (The Fund Raising School) and CFRE International in a research-based program to support South Dakota nonprofit employees, volunteers and board members with fundraising experience to build their capacity in effective fundraising and other important nonprofit leadership skills.

Currently, 30 nonprofit professionals and community leaders are participating in cohort 1. The 2021/22 program will be in-person—or adapt to a virtual format—if needed during the COVID-19 pandemic.  The curriculum offered to participants is the same as the program offered by The Fund Raising School on the Indiana University campus, and will also include a focus on considerations for organizations operating in rural areas.


The deadline to apply is November 10, 2020. The new cohort will begin on February 1, 2021. To learn more, click here or contact Kelly Gibson, program coordinator​.
