Announcing the Crimsonbridge Leadership Fund

Developing Nonprofit Leaders in the Greater Washington Region

March 15, 2016 – The Center for Public & Nonprofit Leadership at Georgetown's McCourt School of Public Policy and the Crimsonbridge Foundation are launching a new scholarship fund aimed at developing the leadership of Greater Washington Region nonprofits.  The Crimsonbridge Leadership Fund will provide scholarships to CPNL’s Nonprofit Management Executive Certificate Program for leaders at locally-based and locally-serving organizations.

“At a time when the nonprofit sector, particularly in the Washington D.C. region, is facing significant challenges and opportunities, the leadership of the sector needs to be strengthened now, more than ever,” CPNL Assistant Director, Luisa Boyarski, said.  “With the support of the Crimsonbridge Foundation, we can strategically invest in developing existing and emerging leaders with the greatest potential.”

Scholarships through The Crimsonbridge Leadership Fund will be available starting with the Summer Certificate Program, which will be held June 11-18, 2016.  “Investing in leadership is essential to sustaining a strong nonprofit sector in our region,” said Danielle M. Reyes, Executive Director of the Crimsonbridge Foundation.  The Foundation also believes in the importance and value of diversity in leadership and encourages applicants of diverse backgrounds to apply to The Crimsonbridge Leadership Fund.  More information on the application process can be found here.

Interested applicants are encouraged to attend an Open House on March 22nd to learn more about the Nonprofit Management Executive Certificate Program.  More information about the event and RSVP can be found here.

“We are thrilled to begin this partnership,” CPNL Director Kathy Kretman said, “and are looking forward to working with our local nonprofit leaders.”
