“I am completing my third year as Executive Director. The Academy has provided me over 90% of my 'nonprofit professional' training. Key topics about standards and accountability, board and ED responsibilities, financial management, 990 preparation, fundraising and grant proposal basics simply would not have been available to me with both the depth and context that the Academy's course provide. Every class I've attended has been enhanced by the real world examples and challenges shared by the students from the many nonprofits in our region.”
- Dick Trowbridge, Executive Director at Horizon Hampton Roads
