Online Fundraising Training and Certification Workshops

NextAfter has conducted over 2,500 online fundraising experiments spanning +200 Million donor interactions with major nonprofit organizations. And along the way, we’ve been documenting everything we’ve learned about why people give and what works to grow your online fundraising. These in-person certification workshops will equip you with everything we’ve learned from our research, including practical application of tested and proven strategies.

During each workshop, you’ll learn the fundamental skills for growing your online fundraising program. You’ll get hands-on experience applying the lessons, and since the workshops are hosted at the NextAfter office, you’ll have access to the whole team to make sure your questions are answered. Each workshop attendee will receive:

  • A workshop binder including notes, checklists, templates, tools, and more.
  • Hands-on coaching from seasoned online fundraisers and optimizers.
  • A NextAfter certification (after passing the exam) to show your online fundraising expertise.

Each workshop will culminate in a pass/fail exam to earn your certification. You can repeat the exams as many times as necessary, and we’ll happily coach and encourage you along the way until you’re certified. Below are the certification workshops currently available.

Can’t Attend In-Person? Consider Online Courses

We know that while the in-person experience is best for getting into issues, learning from others, asking questions, etc. it can be tough to take the time off and get away. That’s why we’ve created online courses that allow you to get certified on your own time, whenever and wherever you want. You can learn more and get started today at
