The Credential: Increase Your Capacity

The UNA Credential equips you with the knowledge, skills, and resources you need to elevate and update the policies and procedures that guide and support your nonprofit in nine essential disciplines. Your work makes life better. Our work helps you do your work—better. 

You'll Receive

  • Two days of interactive training-sessions focused on your need for skills and knowledge—distilled to include the most important concepts to make the most of your time
  • Consultations with your subject-matter-expert to guide you in applying the course to your nonprofit
  • Ongoing coaching to help you apply best-practices at your organization
  • Badges to formally recognize your implementation of Credential requirements
