Nonprofit Leadership Consortium

Community Foundation and United Way Partnership Launches Nonprofit Leadership Consortium

Together, the United Way of Grant County and the Community Foundation of Grant County are excited to announce a new capacity-building training initiative: Nonprofit Leadership Consortium. Through this initiative, participants will collaborate and learn from one another allowing local nonprofits to maximize their impact, strengthen their organization, and gain valuable ideas to help safeguard their resources.

This initiative was formed to undertake an enterprise beyond the resources of any one member. Nonprofits are the backbone of our community, and funders like the United Way and the Community Foundation, help to provide the fortification to keep them healthy and strong! In a cohort setting, participants will have the opportunity to receive a Certificate in Fund Raising Management (CRFM) from Indiana University’s Lilly Family School of Philanthropy and also Leadership Development training from Harris International’s own Tim Harris.

Registration for the Nonprofit Leadership Consortium ranges from $1,500 – $2,250 (see scale below). Full payment is due upon registration via credit card or PayPal. Registrations must be paid in full to secure a spot.

The Cohort will meet every month, August 2018 – May 2019. You must attend every session to earn your CFRM. The CFRM will only be awarded when a participant attends all sessions in their entirety.

Additionally, Indiana Youth Institute offers a Professional Development Grant of $750 to pay a portion of registration fees associated with training workshops that focus on nonprofit management—the Consortium (might) qualify for this grant. Find more information below and apply.

REGISTER TODAY and increase your understanding of the total fundraising process through the principles and techniques taught in this program.
