What’s the difference between Charity Campus and Karma Careers?

Charity Campus resources and products are meant for people who work at charities, nonprofits, and social enterprises. This section of the site offers resources for people currently working in the charitable or social sector, on topics like HR, Fundraising, Finance, etc. But, if you’re not yet working at a charity but interested in learning about best practices, then you can still benefit from Charity Campus resources. Learn more here.

On the other hand, Karma Careers offers e-learning for people interested in working in the charitable sector without any previous experience working at a charity or nonprofit. Karma Careers helps you learn about things like the types of jobs available at charities, how to find charity job opportunities, the benefits of volunteering, etc. Learn more here.

Charity Campus

Who are Charity Campus products appropriate for?

Charity Campus is intended for people who work at charities, nonprofits, and social enterprises, but anyone who’s interested in learning best practices for working in the charitable sector can use a Toolkit. Charity Campus Toolkits and Cheat Sheets are appropriate for any experience level: from entry-level to seasoned pro.

What is a Toolkit?

A Charity Campus Toolkit is a practical resource to help you gain the knowledge and skills you need to overcome a common non-profit challenge. You get step-by-step worksheets, as well as downloadable templates that help you execute a project from start-to-finish.

When you download a Toolkit, you receive a link to download a PDF document, along with some supplemental documents that may be in PDF, Word, or Excel format.

You can see our list of Toolkits here.

What is a Cheat Sheet?

Cheat Sheets are free one pagers with easy to digest top-five tips to help you solve almost any problem. Anyone can access our Cheat Sheets, regardless of whether they’ve purchased membership. Check out our list of Cheat Sheets here.
