Most non-profits do not have extra money for leadership training and yet their volunteers and paid staff would benefit greatly from these programs. Executives at large for-profit companies have thousands of dollars available for their leadership development programs, but non-profits invest their money in their beneficiaries first. Oafound.org through its Five Star Leadership® effort provides the professional education available at these expensive executive programs at a fraction of the cost. This is possible only because of our volunteer development and program staff and by presenting workshops at low-cost facilities such as libraries rather than resorts.
There are costs, though, that donations subsidize. A big effort oafound.org wants to fund this year is to create a incubator for leadership development in a co-op form. Non-profit leadership will come together locally, in La Costa, CA first, to build out a sharing platform much like Vistage® is for profit-organization executives. Initially called the La Costa Leadership Co-op, it is hoped that this will become a model for sharing locally with a national presence. This effort will take money initially, money that is not available in the budgets of the non-profits.
