Funds will add exciting new element to EPI program.
As part of its leadership and community service initiative, American Express supports development for emerging nonprofit and social purpose leaders. The funds granted to the Center will enhance our EPI program with invaluable follow-up coaching.
American Express supports hundreds of non-profit organizations each year through its foundation and corporate giving activities. For nearly a decade, they have dedicated significant resources to strengthening nonprofit and social purpose leadership by creating and funding programs for those working to solve the world’s biggest challenges.
The Center’s Executive Preparation Institute correlates directly with American Express’s initiative to develop new leaders for tomorrow, while also diversifying the current landscape of decision makers. It’s designed specifically for nonprofit professionals at the management and senior level. Participants learn from nonprofit, government and corporate experts about a range of relevant topics, including nonprofit finances, budgeting, fundraising, board governance, leadership tips and tools, evaluations and how to tell their nonprofit’s story.
The American Express grant will support six months of one-on-one coaching for Center members who complete the EPI program.
