The Executive Leadership Development Series is a hands-on exploration of the policy-level perspective required of Executive Directors of non-profits. The Series will give you the opportunity to prepare yourself and your organization for continued growth and success. Series attendance is required. Sessions are typically held one half-day per month for 6 months but schedule is flexible - the series could be set up for once per month for 12 months. Below is a typical list of programs included in the series.
Funders are increasingly supporting small and large scale community coalitions in response to societal needs. Funders also want to be assured that initiatives are sustainable. Successful organizational and community capacity building relies upon bringing together the collective wisdom, skills, tools and resources of the community-at-large. In an era of competitive fundraising, it benefits the community to come together toward common goals. Additional initiatives such as building community awareness and improving outcomes for federal grant proposals are critical to the process.
In this very competitive funding environment, we all need ALL THE HELP WE CAN GET to secure much needed funding. This course is designed for all levels of development professionals…but you need not be a development professional to attend. In fact, most fundraising staff are likely pushed to their maximum capability, so anyone interested in helping an organization or community increase its successful fundraising will benefit from attending. Many of us hesitate to write a proposal simply because we are too busy, want it to be perfect, don’t know how to get started…there is no better time than now!
