Congratulations to the Second Nonprofit Leaders for Excellence Cohort

In May, we celebrated the culmination of our second Nonprofit Leaders for Excellence cohort, a partnership between Knapp Community Care Foundation and Valley Baptist Legacy Foundation.

This nine-month journey for 11 nonprofit leaders from the Rio Grande Valley has been filled with learning best practices for nonprofit leadership, in addition to networking and building partnerships.

Beginning in September 2023, these dedicated nonprofit executives came together for monthly deep dives into topics covering purpose-driven board leadership, a culture of philanthropy, the importance of storytelling, financial matters, developing a people culture, technology, belonging, and more.

Cheers to these nonprofit leaders who are committed to their own professional development and who are passionate about strengthening their own organizations and the broader sector. We applaud you!
