CORE Fellowship Glossary – Many of the terms used in the program description require definition, therefore we created a glossary that we consider a work-in-progress as a resource for applicants.

The CORE Fellowship Program was based off LVCF’s experience in both the Nonprofit Effectiveness Program and Project Equity Initiative, that was jointly launched with UWGLV and FACES International. Learn more about the history of the Nonprofit Effectiveness Program.
