With an ever-increasing focus on impact and results, foundations are looking to nonprofits to deliver meaningful returns on their philanthropic investments. Yet foundations consistently overlook the MOST important investment they can make to ensure nonprofit effectiveness: supporting talent and leadership development. Nonprofits are only as effective as the people who lead them and deliver their services, but many nonprofits are stymied by a lack of systems and structures for improving the skills and abilities of their people. The dearth of resources for talent and leadership development plagues the sector from recruitment through retirement, at individual nonprofits and throughout the entire field.
Come learn about a new movement launched by Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy — Generating Change — that defines this problem in detail, explores options for improvement, and presents multiple ways in which funders can embrace and invest in nonprofit talent and leadership development to create a highly effective workforce.


  • Current research results and trends that are shaping the nonprofit workforce
  • The many ways in which funders can invest in nonprofit talent and leadership development
  • Case studies that highlight the kinds of returns that leading funders and nonprofits are seeing from investments of this kind
