The Center for Nonprofit Studies at ACC is pleased to collaborate with Fayruz Benyousef Consulting and Bucko Design to disseminate Pause. Take stock. Hit the ground running. A Fundraising Workbook for Challenging Times.

With uncertainty the one sure thing in our lives right now, we take comfort in the fact that nonprofit organizations are experts in the unknown. As a sector, nonprofits provide stability where it’s lacking, whether for safety, shelter, food, physical and mental health, jobs, or educational opportunities—the list goes on. Because of limited resources, nonprofits must also conduct their work with a great deal of innovation. With these native conditions of nonprofit work in mind, is there any better resource during the current COVID-19 pandemic than nonprofit expertise? We don’t think so. Now, more than ever, we need mission-driven thinkers and innovators like YOU undaunted by reduced financial circumstances.

We encourage you to download and share this FREE fillable PDF workbook and perspective of how to manage and persevere at this time. It is our collective hope that this resource helps ease your doubts and focus on a much brighter future. We're all in this together! 
For the first time, the Center for Nonprofit Studies is pleased to offer our popular Certificate in Grant Writing ONLINE! Don't miss this intensive, hands-on opportunity to acquire the knowledge and practice the skills necessary to succeed in today’s competitive grant writing environment -- now with a digital twist.

Your instructor, Jack Smith, is an accomplished grant writer with over thirty years of training and consulting experience with hundreds of nonprofit and public organizations throughout the US. His easygoing style packs a vast amount of content and expertise into each day of the course and offers a hands-on approach versus just a series of lectures. This special online offering of our certificate program will include an office hour each day to answer questions and provide individual consultation by appointment.


This certificate program is eligible for the AmeriCorps education award funds and Hazlewood Act tuition exemption program.
The world has changed A LOT over the past few months. Heck, try even over the past few weeks! Just in case you missed the announcement, the IRS has extended the deadline for nonprofits to file their tax returns to July 15. You can find more information here regarding COVID-19 relief and exemptions for nonprofits.

This poster serves to remind us of our responsibility to create an even better world.  Walt Kelly created it for the first Earth Day in 1970. He featured characters from his long-running strip Pogo -- mourning the sad state of the environment. He paraphrased a famous War of 1812 message from (soon to be Commodore) Oliver Hazard Perry: "We have met the enemy, and they are ours."
