Executive Transition

This grant program provides support to nonprofit organizations that are anticipating or in the process of an executive transition. The transition from one executive to the next can be an ideal opportunity for the Board of Directors and senior staff to review the organization’s mission, strategic position and direction; and to clarify what skills and qualities it needs in a new Executive Director.

The transition process should be well thought out, communicated appropriately to internal and external audiences, and involve both the Board and staff. Once an organization has hired its new Executive Director, it is only eligible to apply for up to a year after the hire.

Eligible organizations are those who:

  • Are a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3);
  • Have been in operation for a minimum of two years;
  • Have an annual operating budget of at least $350,000 for a minimum of two years;
  • Can demonstrate that its services are high quality and can measure the positive impact it has on the community.
