Announcing a new program designed for South Dakota's nonprofit sector




The South Dakota Community Foundation (SDCF) and The Numad Group are pleased to announce that they have brought together two institutions internationally recognized as leaders in the development of effective fundraising professionals to create a program specifically for South Dakota nonprofit professionals.

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.

Graduates of the program meet or exceed their fundraising goals at a higher rate than the national average.

The South Dakota Nonprofit Capacity Building program is a 15-month training program that involves:

  • Four fundraising courses taught by faculty from The Fund Raising School.
  • Attainment of the necessary requirements for CFRE credentials.
  • Activities with a statewide cohort of South Dakota fundraising professionals.

Successful completion of the program results in participants attaining the Certificate in Fund Raising Management (CFRM) from The Fund Raising School and completion of requirements to requirements to become a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE). Individuals that complete this program will receive training and attain credentials that raise the bar on professional fundraising practice in South Dakota.

Take the next step professionally, and personally

​The next cohert will be announced in September 2020
