How can Nonprofits LEAD strengthen your organization? As one participant noted, “The chance to be a part of the Nonprofits LEAD was priceless. The networking opportunity…proved to provide valuable connections and resources that were unique to this program.”
With a mission to help build a sustainable nonprofit community in the Mid-Ohio Valley, Nonprofits LEAD provides programming and activities for organizations to achieve their goals. Over the past year, there was an increase of 15% in participants, with 94% saying their work with NP LEAD improved their ability to meet their mission. Recently, they have begun to offer facilitation and consulting services in the areas of strategic planning, board training/retreats, setting goals and monitoring their progress/impact, as well as revisiting the mission and vision of an organization to make sure that it is still relevant and meaningful. If you have specific questions and would like to reach out, they offer 1-2 hours of listening time, free of charge, to new organizations.

That work also made me aware of the problems people have obtaining health care. I love serving on the Board of the Sisters Health Foundation as it has been enlightening to learn more of the history of the Sisters and their mission to “serve the dear neighbor” as well as create systemic change in the health of our local communities. Sisters Health Foundation grantees are doing some great work and I am always impressed when I see them and their projects, especially at the grantee appreciation event in December each year." ...
