Our Vision for the future is for communities to be thriving, healthy, sustainable, and fueled by a diverse network of inspired and innovative leaders.
Our Theory of Change is that valuing nonprofit talent and leadership through focused investment of time, attention and resources is one of the most effective ways to catalyze transformational results for thriving communities.
In pursuit of this vision, we proposed the following goals to be achieved in three years.
|Rally: Individuals across the sector will champion leadership as one of the leading means to significantly increase the sector’s impact in our communities.|
|Identify: A critical mass of nonprofit and philanthropic organizations will demonstrate a commitment to best practices in leadership development.|
|Scale: A significantly increased number of nonprofit and philanthropic leaders will engage annually in high-quality leadership development that equips them to deliver significant results.|
|Engage: Leverage significant new public and private financial investments in nonprofit and philanthropic leadership development.|
