Empowering Nonprofit Leaders
Prioritizing human capital is critical to achieving lasting social impact. All too often, nonprofits lack the resources and opportunities to truly invest in their rising stars. Invest in Success has become an indispensable capacity building program for nonprofit leaders across Utah. In partnership with the Center for Community Development at American Express, the Community Foundation of Utah provides an intensive and immersive program allowing nonprofit executives to build skills in board governance, organizational finance, strategic management, cause marketing, and change leadership that will help take their organization to a new level.
As a participant, nonprofit leaders participate in a four-day customized program that builds skills needed for long-term success. To maximize the experience, content is curated to fit the specific needs and goals of participants. By working together with a network of peers, nonprofit leaders excel in a cooperative learning environment and build a long-lasting support network. Participants that complete the program have the opportunity to apply for a $2,500 grant to be used for a capacity-building project at their organization.
