Leadership Institute

Community Memorial Foundation believes that leadership requires the capacity to turn vision into reality. That’s why we provide grantee board members and executive directors with training in key areas of organizational development.

As part of 2020’s enhanced capacity building program, the Foundation will host three Leadership Institute workshops and one grantee board training aimed at strengthening organizational sustainability. Organizations must attend at least two of the four leadership institute offerings to qualify for the special grant opportunity.

Leadership Institute workshops are offered at no charge and will be facilitated by Fiscal Management Associates, a national organization with a 20-year history of strengthening grantee operations. Each workshop will be presented three times, and is intended for leadership teams of up to 3 people, including staff and board; groups are encouraged to bring their most senior leaders and to attend all three trainings consistently.

IMPORTANT CHANGE: Effective March 23rd, all workshops will be held online. All dates and times remain the same, and we encourage attendees to continue registering for these programs via Eventbrite. The FMA team will send an email containing login information to all registered attendees prior to the webinar. If you are unable to attend at your scheduled time, the Foundation will also post a recording of the webinar on our website for you to revisit on your own time.
