Nonprofit Opportunities

About Certificate Program for Undergraduates

The Kellogg School of Management prepares our graduates for involvement in the nonprofit sector as senior staff and board members. Through a strong academic portfolio and wide range of co-curricular activities as well as numerous student clubs and activities, Kellogg offers students and alumni the opportunity to build a tool kit of skills to engage in important, impactful work in the nonprofit sector. The Social Enterprise curriculum engages students from across the Kellogg School in conversations about the intersection of management and society across disciplines, preparing informed leadership for multiple sectors.

In addition, Kellogg provides thought leadership to nonprofit organizations, enabling them to manage more efficiently and meet their missions more effectively. Through executive education, research and technical assistance, Kellogg engages with organizations of all sizes and missions. Our portfolio of executive education programs provides leading edge thinking in critical areas of nonprofit leadership and management and brings together the knowledge base of Kellogg faculty and the seasoned experience of nonprofit practitioners.

Kellogg supports a range of activities for our students, the Evanston and Chicago communities and the nonprofit sector at large including events, research and student consulting for nonprofit organizations, all part of our effort to lead bravely, collaborate passionately and change the world.

Invest in Nonprofit

Nonprofit Management at Kellogg invites your investment in our activities. Specifically, we financially support three key initiatives:

  • Scholarships and financial assistance for nonprofit leaders to attend our executive education programs
    Scholarship assistance is critical, because many of the nonprofit leaders who will benefit most from our executive education programs can least afford to attend. Their organizations have scarce resources that do not cover tuition costs.
  • Tuition assistance for participants in the Kellogg Executive Scholars Program
    Aid is particularly important for participants in the Kellogg Executive Scholars program, which includes a general management component with a three to five day residential program expense. Gifts to Nonprofit Management at Kellogg allow us to extend our reach into the nonprofit community and ultimately benefit the organizations that come to us.
  • Outreach events designed to build networks of key nonprofit leaders around important issues facing the sector
    One of our key initiatives is community outreach, fostering dialogue among nonprofit leaders on critical issues facing the sector. Nonprofit Management at Kellogg hosts three outreach events annually and works with Kellogg School MBA students on the annual Social Impact conference.
