Nonprofit Leadership Program

The Fremont Area Community Foundation strives to ensure that the Fremont area is thriving. An essential component of a thriving community is thriving nonprofits. The foundation wants all nonprofits to have the tools and resources to grow, be sustainable, and maximize the impact of donor support. Nonprofits need the tools to achieve their missions and leaders to guide their organizations effectively. FACF believes in offering a variety of capacity-building opportunities for area nonprofits, including our Nonprofit Leadership Program.

Nonprofit Leadership Program

The NLP helps organizations develop and implement a strategic plan, build and engage strong leadership, develop board engagement, and foster community peer networks and collaboration. The foundation offers monthly education sessions throughout the year with topics such as:

...the nonprofit life stages, responsibilities of a board, board and executive director partnership, NAM infrastructure assessments, organizational identity (mission, vision, values), communications, strategic planning, evaluation, finances (budgets, 990, financial reporting, internal controls), fund development plans, consent agendas, ambassadorship, board committees, reporting dashboards, succession planning, collaboration and partnerships, annual evaluation of executive director, annual board assessments, effective meetings, change management, growth management, and crisis communications. Up to five nonprofits in the Fremont area are chosen to participate in the annual program.
