Apply now for Pro Bono Consulting Grant

I am proud to announce a new partnership with the Entrepreneurs Foundation of North Texas called the Executives in Action (EIA) program. Through this new program, the Center for Nonprofit Management is able to provide member organizations with access to senior level consultants at no cost.

More info here:

www.ExecutivesInAction.org

 What is it?

EIA supports senior executives who are in transition while engaging them in short-term, high-impact consulting projects with nonprofit organizations.

Who are the Executives? 
Executives are highly skilled individuals with 15+ years management experience who are currently transitioning between jobs and are actively seeking work in the business sector.
However, they are not individuals who no longer need to work and who can afford to volunteer significant amounts of time. This program is intended to help the Executives and their families as much as the nonprofits themselves.

Where will they work?

Placements will only be made at nonprofit organizations that have applied for a Consulting Grant and been vetted by the Center.

What are the terms of the consulting projects?
Executives volunteer 1 or 2 days per week while they continue their job search. The typical placement is from 2-8 weeks at a time, but will not exceed 26 weeks. In exchange for their service, executives will receive an honorarium of $125 per day from the Center for Nonprofit Management.

How can a nonprofit apply for a Consulting Grant? 

Nonprofits may submit as many project opportunities as they wish here. The application is simple and straightforward, and should take less than 2 minutes once you have a project identified. There is no financial obligation on the part of the nonprofit that hosts an executive other than providing the supplies and management support that the executives need to complete their project.
