Invest in Success

Investing in Nonprofit Leadership

Prioritizing human capital is critical to achieving lasting social impact.  All too often, nonprofits lack the resources and opportunities to truly invest in their rising stars. Invest in Success has become an indispensable capacity building program for nonprofit leaders across Utah. In partnership with the Center for Community Development at American Express and Fifth Ocean Consulting, the Community Foundation of Utah provides an intensive and immersive program allowing nonprofit executives to build skills in board governance, organizational finance, strategic management, cause marketing, and change leadership that will help take their organization to a new level.


How to Participate

Nonprofit executives selected to participate in the program should lead organizations that meet the following criteria:

  • They serve a CRA-eligible (low-income) community or population, including Native Americans, and are focused on economic development or human services
  • They are a significant driver of social innovation in their communities
  • They are staffed by talented leaders who seek training to help them and their organizations become more strategic
  • They face significant barriers of time, distance, and discretionary funds to receive training and support
