“Earning ABN Certificates has impacted my career greatly. I finished my second certificate before I left my previous employer, working for a local community center. I really wanted to keep cultivating my passion for serving the community by joining a nonprofit board, but I did not have the opportunities to do so. After completing my certificate, ABN posted a picture of me with the certificate on social media. Then, I was contacted by a colleague who was serving on a board that was looking for someone with fundraising experience to join. I had just completed my fundraising certificate, which grew my knowledge and skillset of fundraising. Adding that in with my current fundraising experience at the time, it opened a door for me to serve on my first board of directors. Now I am serving on three boards of directors and the knowledge I learned from my ABN Fund Development and Leadership Certificates has significantly benefitted me and the progression of my passion to serve the community.” — Anderson Olds, Coordinator for Diversity Initiatives at the Office of Diversity & Community Relations, UT Haslam College of Business
