Community Foundation Supports Professional Development for Nonprofit Leaders

Allentown, Pa., March 24, 2021—Lehigh Valley Community Foundation recently issued grants that support professional development initiatives for nonprofit leaders in the Lehigh Valley. The grants were sent to the organization’s key leaders to be used at their discretion. They are the ones who know what activities best fit their organization’s needs. 

Organizations receiving the $2,000 grants for 2020-21 are:  

  • Foundation of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of the Lehigh Valley, Inc. 
  • Dress for Success Allentown 
  • SELF LV 
  • The Ortiz Ark Foundation 
  • Unidos Foundation  
  • Change Now Inc  
  • Casa Oasis 

“We recognize the importance and impact that these professional development funds for nonprofit leaders are in helping ensure the continued growth and effectiveness of their organizations,” said Megan Briggs, director of community investments at the Community Foundation. “Too often professional development is the first thing to be put on hold as organizations shift funding to meet other priorities.”
