Matt Hugg is president and founder of Nonprofit.Courses, your on-demand, online educational resource for nonprofit leaders, staff, board members and volunteers.
Matt was inspired to create Nonprofit.Courses through his work in creating and delivering high quality international, national and local seminars, webinars and courses through professional associations (such as the Association of Fundraising Professionals and the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education) corporate clients, (such as roundCorner (now Salesforce), Microsoft and Avanade) and academia (at Eastern University, the University of Pennsylvania, Thomas Edison State University, Juniata College, Villanova and Drexel.)
Hugg brings his broad and diverse fundraising and nonprofit management experience to you, collected from his work at several nonprofits and universities, including Lebanon Valley College, the University of Cincinnati, Ursinus College and the University of the Arts of Philadelphia. In these positions, Matt raised thousands of gifts from individuals, foundations, corporations and government entities, and worked with hundreds of volunteers on boards and fundraising committees, in addition to his organizational leadership responsibilities.
