The Numad Group and the Rural Philanthropy Institute are pleased to announce that we are continuing to accept applications for the third cohort of the South Dakota Nonprofit Capacity Building Program.

The program brings 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.
