The InwardBound Center for Nonprofit Leadership invites nonprofit organizations focused on eliminating poverty to apply for a six-month leadership training valued at $40,000.
The InwardBound Center has awarded $200,000 worth of technical assistance grants since 2010. Grant
recipients include the Latin American Association, CARE, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Georgia, and
“The coaching program for my senior leadership team ended over a year ago and we have seen tremendous strides in our fundraising and program growth,” said Jeffrey Tapia, executive director of the Latin American Association. “Thereʼs no doubt that the deep work we did with the InwardBound Center made a difference.”
How will this grant benefit you?
The number 1 quality funders look for is strong executive leadership, according to the 2012 Georgia Grantmakers Survey; however, professional development is one of the most underfunded areas in nonprofits. “When funders invest in leadership development, they increase their return on investment of their program dollars,” says Founder Catherine Perry.
How the program works
At the start of the team engagement, an assessment quantifies the senior teamʼs performance on 14
productivity and positivity factors. The assessment is administered again at the end of the team engagement to measure results. The customized six-month program, combined with the teamʼs hard work and commitment, result in dramatic changes. The six-month engagement for this grant cycle begins September 15.
