The NMI Certificate program allowed me to develop my professional growth as a nonprofit leader, as well as identify where my organization was at risk in all the critical components. Each certification provided unique, comprehensive tools I could immediately implement. The instructors were 'masters' in their field of expertise and provided insight into real-life applications. The information was so valuable I could not take the certifications fast enough! The nonprofit sector has long awaited a certification program of this caliber. It was well worth the investment of both my time and money.
Executive Director, Arizona Transit Association
As I enter into a new chapter in my professional life, I feel so thankful for the practical learnings I received through the Nonprofit Marketing and Strategic Communications Certificate as well as the re-energizing that came from meeting a diverse, insightful and welcoming group of industry peers, sharing ideas, encouragement and synergy together.
I have benefited a great deal from my NMI classes. The classes helped expand my knowledge of the nonprofit sector and gave me great strategies to use in my own organization. I feel what I learned in the program helped me professionally as I was promoted to a director-level position while I was going through the program.
Executive Director and Founder, Million Dollar Teacher Project
Although I have worked in the nonprofit sector for over 20 years, the NMI experience provided immediate and usable tools that helped enhance my knowledge to become a more skilled nonprofit professional. It was great to interact face-to-face with individuals of all educational backgrounds and levels of experience that were committed to their organization’s mission and seeking to advance in their professional development just like me. I learned up-to-date trends affecting the nonprofit sector today and ways to lead and manage staff, volunteers, and board members more effectively. The knowledge learned in strategic planning, marketing, fundraising and resource development is invaluable. I would definitely recommend the ASU Lodestar Center’s Nonprofit Management Institute program to others.

The NMI Certificate Program has proven to be a great investment for my organization and is a ‘must’ for nonprofit leaders who want to secure the future of their organization.
Executive Director, Catholic Tuition Support Organization
Lodestar has enabled me to re-direct my career from the corporate world to a nonprofit organization with confidence. I have gained valuable knowledge and insight through class discussions with colleagues who have shared their organization's experiences, concerns, and achievements. I believe that by pursuing a certification from Lodestar I have been able to quickly secure an internship and then ultimately a position with a nonprofit organization I have a passion to serve for. Attending Lodestar is one of the best decisions I have made! The staff has been fantastic too.
Team Lead, Feed My Starving Children
I have been laser focused on completing the certificate programs and to be a part of NMI. It has been on list of goals for many years. This has been such a great path to continue the education process once you start the NMI certificate.
