The Valentine Fund for Visionary Leadership at the Valentine Foundation is committed to supporting leadership development for women leaders of nonprofit organizations in southeastern Pennsylvania that improve the lives of women and/or girls.
Through its 2020 RFP, the fund will award a total of between $30,000 and $40,000 in support of leadership development initiatives with the potential to make nonprofit women leaders more effective and develop the next generation of leaders working to improve the quality of life for women and girls in southeastern Pennsylvania.
Examples of leadership development initiatives include conferences and or workshops that are part of a larger leadership development strategy; consulting services; training and or coaching either brought in house or provided externally; courses or certificates offered by local colleges and universities that are directly related to building leadership capacity and characteristics; and succession planning.
To be eligible, applicants must be a nonprofit organization with paid staff operating in southeastern Pennsylvania whose primary focus and mission-driven activities benefit women and/or girls either through direct service, advocacy, public policy, or capacity building. Organizations must serve at least an 85 percent female (inclusive of all who identify as female) population or have a program that serves 100 percent women and/or girls.
