Leadership Council for Nonprofits and the BOLD program are proud to announce that BOLD will be held once per quarter (4) in 2021. Over the last year, we have worked with nearly 60 different organizations and trained 140 professionals for nonprofit board service. As organizations plan for 2021, we are providing a new option for organizations to make a year-long investment in the BOLD program. Private companies can now pay an annual tuition fee to guarantee 4 of their employees will go through BOLD throughout 2021. BOLD is an opportunity for organizations to invest in employees, exercise corporate social responsibility, and commit to racially diverse, inclusive, and sustainable nonprofit governance. Reach out to the BOLD Program Manager, Jack FitzGerald, for more information at bold@leadershipcouncil.us.
