Our Alumni Network

“We in the nonprofit sector are in for a tough ride. Change will either happen to us, or as a sector we will decide what change we want to see, and what we want to do about it. It is up to us to speak together and figure out how to bring our collective voice for action.”
— Fonda Davidson - Executive Director, Cross Cultural Family Center, San Francisco Class of 2009

LeaderSpring’s greatest asset is our nearly 250 Alumni and current Fellows. This vibrant community of equity-driven leaders are united by an ethic of mutual support and camaraderie. Long-term, this ecosystem of diverse, cross issue leaders seeks to collectively influence public policy and champion an equity agenda for social sector reform that leads to new models of excellence in leadership and governance.

Recognizing the value of their Fellowship experience, Alumni give generously of their talent, time and treasure to ensure other nonprofit leaders continue to benefit from the training and support we provide. 

Our goal is that Alumni develop mutually-supportive relationships for life. To nurture this vibrant and growing community, we provide spaces for networking, peer support, and continual learning. Alumni form enduring bonds with LeaderSpring staff and their peers, support one another, and collaborate to better serve their communities.
