Giving for a Living

As one of the first universities in the country to offer a degree in nonprofit management, Regis understands that for you, a career is about more than money or status. It’s about making a difference. Guided by our Jesuit heritage, our Master of Nonprofit Management (MNM) degree program provides a rigorous, values-based, transformative education.

Nonprofit work is deeply fulfilling, and a big part of that is having the chance to help others. As a Regis MNM student, you’ll have the opportunity to gain firsthand experience in our unique service-oriented field experience (SOFE). This program provides you with professional, real-world experience as you work directly in a nonprofit organization either abroad or in the local Denver community. International SOFE programs are currently offered in Rwanda, Uganda and Mexico, with future opportunities being developed. Wherever you put your skills to use, you’ll gain valuable insights into the real workings of nonprofit organizations. As recent Regis MNM graduate Tyler Breuer put it:

“It’s a learning experience, so pack a clear heart, open eyes and maybe a tough stomach. Let yourself be completely immersed in all aspects of the SOFE—even the challenging ones.”

Did you know nonprofit work accounts for nearly 11.5 million jobs in the U.S., or more than 10% of national employment? Or that job growth in the nonprofit world outpaces that of the for-profit sector by nearly 3 to 1? The numbers speak for themselves—nonprofit work is a valuable and increasingly complex career choice, and needs intelligent, driven and ambitious leaders more than ever. 

The Regis curriculum is built on a century of values which inspire leadership and social justice, building skills and expertise for immediate application. Our program is consistently recognized for producing top-performing graduates who have gained experience in fundraising, governance, community relations and nonprofit law through the course of their studies.

We’re still accepting applications for our August 24 start date. There’s no fee to apply and we’ve reduced tuition by 6.6% for students starting in Fall 2020 and beyond.

The Regis MNM is taught in an 8-week format, either online or on-campus during the evenings. There’s no fee to apply, no letters of recommendation needed and no GRE scores required. Class sizes are capped to maintain a small student-to-faculty ratio, ensuring you’re not just a face in the crowd, but a valuable member of the Regis community.
