Invest in Success

Investing in Dynamic Leaders

Prioritizing human capital is critical to achieving lasting social impact.A commonly missed opportunity in the nonprofit sector is investing in new and emerging leaders. 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, the Community Foundation of Utah provides an intensive and immersive program allowing nonprofit leaders 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.

As a participant, nonprofit leaders participate in an interactive virtual cohort that meets 2 hours each week for 2 months in the fall. Program content is designed and led by a national facilitator to fit participants' needs and builds skills for long-term success.  By working together with a network of peers, nonprofit leaders excel in a cooperative learning environment and build a long-lasting support network. Participants that complete the program have the opportunity to apply for up to a $5,000 grant to be used for a capacity-building project at their organization.
