The Chief Executive Leaders Ascend Program (CELAP), backed by JP Morgan Chase and administered by the Center for Nonprofit Advancement, has been instrumental in bolstering eight Black women-led nonprofits in southeast Washington, DC. Each organization received a $25,000 grant, which allowed participants to address immediate financial needs while supporting vendors, fostering community economic circulation. Additionally, funding facilitated vital capacity-building efforts like wellness sessions and program strengthening.

As we celebrate the achievements of the inaugural CELAP cohort, the final evaluation report serves as a testament to the transformative power of supporting Black women leaders.  Moving forward, the Center for Nonprofit Advancement remains committed to advancing equity and fostering inclusive leadership in the nonprofit sector, ensuring that all voices are heard and amplified to create lasting change in their communities.
