The heart of the Florida Nonprofit Community

Florida Nonprofits has provided knowledge and certification through our education and training programs.


The Sunshine Certificate in Nonprofit Management is a program developed by Florida Nonprofits in 1995.  It consists of an 11-class series with related assignments and, upon completion of all classes, a certificate in Nonprofit Management is awarded (and the student has created all the collateral material for a grant proposal).  The program is presented in coordination with Broward College and Nova Southeastern University Fischler School of Education.

Classes are available on a monthly basis where two classes are held in one day to add convenience and efficiency to those traveling from out of town.   Florida Nonprofits also offers an intensive series where all 11 classes can be taken in four intensive days at a resort location.

Florida Nonprofits also offers a course in “How to Form a Nonprofit Organization” on the first Friday of each month (or custom scheduled for your convenience). The purpose of the two-hour session is to discover what you need to know before launching a nonprofit organization and includes all contact information for Florida official registrations, IRS, a 1023 worksheet, and much more.
