M.S. in Fundraising Management Information Session
Nationally, there are more than 1.4 million nonprofit institutions. Over one million of these are classified as 501(c)(3) charities, a growing sector that has kept the nonprofit field robust through the recent economic crisis. In New York City alone, nonprofit organizations employ over half a million people.
As a result of these shifts in the national nonprofit picture, the need for fundraising professionals to distinguish themselves has increased. Nonprofit institutions seek individuals with a thorough understanding of the philanthropic marketplace, a mastery of key fundraising techniques, and comprehensive management skills. Because of this demand for highly-skilled development personnel, salaries are among the highest in the sector.
The part-time Fundraising Management master's degree program equips professionals to excel in institutional advancement, development and nonprofit management careers.
Prospective students are encouraged to attend information sessions featuring presentations by program directors and representatives of the faculty. Advisers review the curriculum and program expectations, as well as admission requirements and application procedures. Ample time is reserved for Q & A.
