Capacity Building & Transition Planning Resources

In a recent Bridgespan Group survey, only one-third of nonprofit leaders believe their organizations are effective at developing a strong pipeline of future leaders. Yet, on average, over the last 20 years, only about 1 percent of US foundation funding has gone to talent development, with much of it going to general leadership programs that aren’t directly aligned with the specific needs of a given field (Building a Field-Specific Leadership Pipeline).

in this community."
I genuinely appreciated the time you gave me and the candid information you provided. It was very helpful and will hopefully help me make a more informed decision.
"Our conversation on Friday seriously helped me seal the deal with (the organization) and feel confident in how I went about doing it.
