June 6, 2017 | The Terrace Room, Lake Merritt Hotel 

Celebrate LeaderSpring's 20 year legacy of strengthening and connecting social sector leaders. We invite you to engage with us so that together we can ensure more people actualize their power to collectively and boldly move toward a just and equitable society.


LeaderSpring's mission is to foster a powerful, equity-driven social sector by strengthening leaders and organizations; developing communities of leaders; and transforming the systems in which they work.

Our dream is that leaders, organizations, and communities in the social sector achieve their promise and potential to create a healthy and equitable society.

FELLOWSHIP

LeaderSpring’s on-the-job Fellowship Program is awarded to social sector leaders and their organizations, spanning a range of direct and advocacy services. The majority are women and people of color. Collectively, our nearly 250 Fellows and alumni deliver critical services to over a million clients in the San Francisco Bay Area each year.

CONSULTING

Building on a proven track record, LeaderSpring offers customized services to foundations, government agencies, and nonprofit intermediaries to strengthen the leadership and organizational capacity of their respective grantees, providers, or clients.

ALUMNI NETWORK

LeaderSpring’s nearly 250 alumni and Fellows are its greatest asset. Alumni generously offer their talent, time and treasure to new classes of Fellows each year. Looking ahead, alumni seek to apply their diverse knowledge and experience in pursuit of a collective equity agenda aimed at reforming the social sector.”


National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy (NCRP) Report: 

NCRP released a report titled "Cultivating Nonprofit Leadership: A (Missed?) Philanthropic Opportunity," featuring LeaderSpring and three other leadership development programs across the country.

LeaderSpring also builds communities
of leaders, providing the space needed for creative
idea exchanges and forging relationships
across issue silos for transformational change.

Case Study: A Bolder Form of Leadership

LeaderSpring is proud to share A Bolder Form of Leadership, a case study of how Jennifer Lyle of Building Blocks for Kids accelerated change in Richmond's Iron Triangle community with the help of her LeaderSpring Fellowship.

“Many decisions were being made on behalf of people who lived in the community. Much of the work being done was grounded in the perspective that people are broken and need to be fixed, rather than that the systems are broken.”
