American Express Puts Nonprofit Leadership Programs Online
Seeking to improve the leadership skills at nonprofits around the world, the American Express Foundation is starting an ambitious new digital effort to train aspiring charity executives.
On Wednesday, the corporate grant maker — jointly with the Presidio Institute — is set to launch Leaderosity, a website that builds on a decade’s worth of work to offer professional development for ambitious, often young nonprofit staff members.
Tim McClimon, president of the American Express Foundation, said the site will serve as a centralized, one-stop location for a diverse range of courses created by professional development service providers and, eventually, academic institutions. Costs per course range from free to a few thousand dollars. . .
