Grants of $55,000 to California nonprofit organization leaders in eligible regions for an opportunity to engage in personal and professional development. The purpose of the program is to provide senior nonprofit leaders with a leave-of-absence. Funding is intended to recognize and reward the accomplishments of local nonprofit leaders, as well as to advance their skills and capacity to lead. Awardees also meet twice a year to engage in cross-disciplinary dialogue. Awardees must live and work full-time in Los Angeles County.
The Durfee Sabbatical program funds up to six organizations for their leaders to travel, reflect or otherwise renew themselves in whatever manner they propose, for a minimum of three consecutive months. The Sabbatical is designed for the most senior leader of the organization, who reports directly to the board, and carries the ultimate responsibility for managing resources and implementing programs.
The program is not designed for executive transition, but to invest in leaders who are committed to staying in their position for at least the next three years.
Organizations with a plan to establish a permanent, revolving Professional Development Fund and Leave Policy for the organization's staff are eligible for up to $5,000 of additional support.
