Nonprofit organizations increasingly fill the gaps in societal needs that federal and local government lack the capacity or political will to provide, from education to social services, to the arts and healthcare. To meet our communities’ needs, in Houston and across the country and world, we must prepare the professionals and volunteers dedicated to making a difference in this sector with the skills, training and tools to navigate a complex universe of challenges.
Through the Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership (CPNL), the Glasscock School specializes in high-quality preparation for nonprofit leaders of every experience level and impact area, from executive and volunteer leadership to fundraising and financial operations professionals. In almost thirty years of offering classes at Rice, the Glasscock School has served hundreds of organizations and trained nonprofit leaders in Houston and around the world. Today, the Center is poised to strengthen its most impactful programs and provide lasting support for the next generation of difference-makers.
Expanding scholarships for the Leadership Institute for Nonprofit Executives: the Leadership Institute for Nonprofit Executives focuses coursework and coaching on the development of emerging and existing nonprofit executives to effectively lead their organizations. Yet, many small organizations are not able to cover the cost of the program within their limited budget, excluding a critical group of nonprofit leaders. With expanded scholarship support, the Glasscock School can open this powerful program to even more executive-level nonprofit leaders who will put the skills and expertise they gain to work bettering their communities.
Creating an endowment of the Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership: endowed funding for the Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership provides lasting, sustained support for the core of the enterprise. This sustained support, in turn, creates more financial flexibility for the Center to enhance and expand the innovative programs, courses and coaching that have the most impact for nonprofit leaders.
