As we step into our 41st year, we reflect on the meaningful journey of the past 40 years, and celebrate the ripple effect of our leadership development and community building efforts. Now, with gratitude for the ripples, we set our sights on using them to create waves.
The kickoff of this transformative year has been nothing short of inspiring. We welcomed 33 leaders into three separate learning groups, marking the beginning of a six-month program that has become a cornerstone of our Network. It’s heartening to witness the commitment and engagement of these leaders, driving the momentum forward. As one member observed, “my group is epic”!
In our ongoing commitment to support and empower, we are excited to share that this year, we will be coaching eight nonprofit CEOs. This initiative aims to provide invaluable support and wisdom as they navigate the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
A highlight of our capacity-building efforts is the Clare Rose Sabbatical, a $50,000 grant program. The program offers nonprofit leaders the chance for rest and renewal while their teams lead in their absence. Our recent session at The Nonprofit Institute’s Board Governance Symposium, titled “Sabbatical as Strategic Governance,” aimed to demystify sabbaticals for boards and showcase their role in strategic work.
As we embrace the wisdom of “Be the ripple. Create the wave,” let’s remember that creating a difference in someone’s life has a profound impact on everyone influenced by them throughout their lifetime. This is our collective mission – to create waves of positive change that resonate far beyond our immediate circles.
