Our customizable services include program design, facilitation and training, needs assessment, and evaluation. Using a relationship-oriented and culturally aware approach, we strengthen the capacity of your grantees or providers to achieve greater community impact, thereby sustaining your investment.

Overview of Services

Case Studies

S.H. Cowell Foundation

The S. H. Cowell Foundation twice contracted with LeaderSpring to execute three-day retreats of 100 foundation grantees from Northern California. In collaboration with a team from the foundation, LeaderSpring managed the project, designed the retreat program and evaluations, and facilitated the convenings. Lise Maisano, Vice President Grant Programs, shares: “We hired LeaderSpring to design and facilitate a three-day retreat for 100 foundation grantees from across Northern California. We wanted to ensure that participants took away concrete tools and ideas, strengthened their relationships with peers, and experienced rejuvenation and renewal. As a result of LeaderSpring’s program design, facilitation, and project management, the retreat was a huge success. LeaderSpring did such a superb job that we invited them back for the next retreat two years later. I highly recommend them.”

Participants commented:

  • “[This was] by far the most impactful and relevant retreat I have attended in a long time.”

  • “I can’t thank you enough for the absolutely brilliant retreat! It was educational, inspirational, and spectacularly well-coordinated. I returned to work today feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, with many new ideas and skills that I will begin putting into action to strengthen my agency’s work.”

  • Community Foundation for Monterey County

    The Community Foundation for Monterey County contracted with LeaderSpring to co-design and conduct key trainings for their year-long Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) Institute for future leaders. LeaderSpring provided consultation on program design, including outcomes and structure, and co-facilitated the two-day kick-off retreat. Kaki Rusmore, program officer, reflected:
    “LeaderSpring’s wisdom, commitment, and depth of knowledge about leadership development have been invaluable to the Community Foundation for Monterey County as we developed our Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) program. LeaderSpring’s willingness and ability to support us on everything from the big philosophical issues to the details of daily training plans made all the difference in creating the caliber of program we are now implementing. Their collaborative attitude and willingness to strengthen our staff’s capacity has helped us confidently provide this program to our community. Having LeaderSpring Director of Programs Renato Almanzor co-facilitate our opening seminar was a pure joy. LeaderSpring is a real asset to the field and a great partner.”
