2021 Clare Rose Sabbatical Recipients Announced
Kids Included Together License to Freedom Promises2Kids
Awarded $50,000 Capacity Building Grants
Congratulations to Kids Included Together and Torrie Dunlap, License to Freedom and Dilkhwaz Ahmed and Promises2Kids and Tonya Torosian on their selection to participate in this capacity building program. Valued at $50,000, each of these organizations will receive:
- Individual stipends and expenses of up to $40,000 to cover CEO salary, benefits, and travel to reflect or otherwise renew themselves in whatever manner they propose;
- Additional support of up to $5,000 fund for professional staff development. The purpose of the fund is to make it possible for other staff to have access to training programs or short-term leaves that might enhance their professional capacities.
- A fund of $2,500 to appropriately compensate or reward the leader or team that filled the role of the Executive Director during the sabbatical.
- Up to 12 consulting hours to aid in the preparation for, to be on-call during, and assist in the re-entry from the sabbatical.
Our thanks to past CR Sabbatical Takers Renato Paiva, Access Youth Academy; Don Stump, North County Lifeline; Je’net Kreitner, Grandma’s House of Hope; and Barbara Reuer, Resounding Joy for joining Fieldstone and Clare Rose Foundation on the selection committee. Having past sabbatical participants join the selection and interview team is a hallmark of our program as we believe those with real-life experience understand best which organizations are ready for this powerful capacity building experience.
While COVID-19 has required the program to adapt, we were able to successfully complete one sabbatical in 2020 and two in 2021. Two previously scheduled sabbaticals will now begin in 2022. Our newest cohort will embark on their sabbatical journeys by June 2023 and June 2024. Due to these schedule changes, we will not offer the program in 2022. The Clare Rose Sabbatical will begin accepting applications again in January 2023. More information is available on our website.
To date, we have provided 27 sabbatical grants to local nonprofit leaders and their organizations.
Please join us in welcoming KIT, License to Freedom, and Promises2Kids to our Clare Rose Sabbatical Family!
