Yesterday, Don Cates (CEO of 3Rivers) and I had the privilege to be lunch guests of Cheryl Taylor (President & CEO) and Dawn Martz (Director of Programs) of the Foellinger Foundation. What an interesting and enlightening conversation we had!
Cheryl introduced us to a program that the Foellinger Foundation has begun. If you serve as an employee of a nonprofit organization or serve as a board member of a nonprofit, you will want to check out their resources and leadership development offerings.

“At Foellinger Foundation, we believe successful nonprofits help our community grow and flourish. And when their leadership is strong, the organization and the community thrive.
According to Talent Philanthropy, foundations devoted less than 1% of their resources toward supporting the recruitment, retention, compensation or development of nonprofit talent between 1992 and 2011.
That’s why we created the Helene Foellinger Leadership Development Initiative; we’re committed to helping support, strengthen and inspire local leaders with strategic programs and experiential learning opportunities.
In 2018, the Foundation board of directors reauthorized this initiative for another four years with an additional $1 million commitment. In that year, Foellinger committed 7.15% of its resources to leadership initiatives.”
