Our Program

Imagine a job where you live out your passion and participate in creating meaningful, positive change. Humber’s Fundraising Management graduate certificate program prepares you for that career and is the only full-time, in-class program of its kind in Ontario. At the end of one exciting year of practical learning, you emerge prepared to make an immediate, dynamic, positive contribution to our world.

You will study with professors that are among Toronto’s most accomplished, award-winning, nonprofit leaders. They will inspire, share insights from years of fundraising campaign experience and challenge you to do your best.

Your dynamic course of study is designed to give you practical, hands-on experience in all of the methods that nonprofit organizations use to create and maintain relationships with their communities of support. You will learn to manage diverse groups of donors, volunteers and staff all toward a goal of enabling non-profit organizations to achieve their missions.

To prepare you for the job market, you conclude your studies with an eight-week work placement that brings into focus all that you have learned throughout the year. Before embarking on that placement, throughout the entire year you will be continually interacting with fundraising professionals – many of whom will be potential future employers. All courses feature regular appearances by these leaders. As well, you will be working directly with charities on a number of class assignments, and you attend two professional conferences as part of your curriculum.
