Leading From Within
Investing in leaders that serve the public good.
We live in a region filled with dedicated leaders who give their whole selves towards improving our communities, but, sadly, who too often work in an environment of scarcity, isolation and competition. We need social sector leaders who are prepared, renewed, connected and collaborating, and who represent the broad diversity of our region.
At Leading From Within, we foster a dynamic network of public-minded leaders who know each other, trust each other, and are better able to work together to improve our communities. This investment better ensures that leaders can address some of society’s more persistent challenges.
Begin to Build a Relationship
We know you care about where your money goes and how it is used. Connect with this organization’s leadership in order to begin to build this important relationship. Your email will be sent directly to this organization’s director of development and/or Executive Director.
Compare leadership in nonprofits before Leading From Within, and today. You’ll see that posturing and rivalries have largely been replaced with genuine mutual support, care, and engagement. I’ve witnessed this first-hand over my time in this community, and experienced the value as well as a Courage to Lead participant. Leading From Within lays the groundwork for needed collaboration and innovation between organizations. Investing with LFW is a meaningful way to support the leaders from many of the great organizations listed here in The Giving List.
Invest in People Who Drive and Create Change
Leading From Within brings social sector leaders together to grow as individuals and improve their effectiveness as leaders, sustain each other as peers to keep leading and learning, and increase their capacity to be collaborators for the common good. Your support means investment in people who drive and create change. Together, we are creating transformational self-development opportunities and powerful networks that provide leaders with the skills, mindsets, and connections to make meaningful change in our community.
