With the aim of increasing the capacity of nonprofit organizations by offering time for the leader to replenish his or her energy while providing opportunities for others in the organization to take the helm in leading, the Clare Rose Sabbatical program is in its sixth year. The grant is valued at $50,000 and covers the salary and benefits for the leader to take time away to reflect and renew, an organizational consultant to assist in the planning, implementation period and the return of the leader, a fund for staff development and stipends for those leading during the three-month sabbatical. Once again, one of the four sabbaticals was awarded to a new member of our leadership community!
The four newest members of the Clare Rose Sabbatical Community join 19 other organizations in receiving a sabbatical grant, including 211 San Diego, American Diabetes Foundation OC, Families Forward, Grandma’s House of Hope, HomeAid Orange County, I Love A Clean San Diego, Ivey Ranch Park, Mainly Mozart, Make A Wish San Diego, Malashock Dance, Mama’s Kitchen, Mercy House, New Village Arts, North County Lifeline, OneOC, Pacific Arts Movement, Susan G. Komen Orange County, The Ecology Center, and transcenDANCE Youth Arts Project.
As in past years, former recipients participated in the selection process of this cohort. Our thanks to Dan McQuaid, Alberto Cortés of Mama’s Kitchen, Tonya Danielly of Ivey Ranch and John Ohanian of 211 San Diego for sharing their time and wisdom with us.
