The Metcalf Foundation: Launches Leading and Learning Program
The Metcalf Foundation has a long history of supporting the professional development of leaders in the non-profit sector. Building on this longstanding commitment, the foundation has launched the Leading and Learning Program. The program has two funding streams.
The Network Learning Fund supports a group of organizations, led by a charitable partner, in exploring a shared concern, challenge, or area of common interest.
The Individual Leadership Fund supports senior non-profit management individuals in their pursuit of professional leadership development with recognized teaching or training institutions.
These two funds take a layered approach to building individual leadership capacity, strengthening the ties between talented peers working in common cause across a sector, and exposing networks to new ideas.
These streams are available to applicants who work in one of Metcalf’s three program areas: the Environment; the Performing Arts; or Inclusive Local Economies. The first deadline for applications to the program is May 29, 2017.
