In 2015, the SCC commissioned a leadership scan of Washington state’s nonprofit sector with an interest in understanding how to best develop and support strong nonprofit and community leaders. The SCC partnered with CompassPoint to explore what resources were needed to further develop the skills required to lead the teams, organizations and movements making positive changes in our region.
The SCC is committed to taking action by investing in opportunities this report identifies.
We challenge every funder and service provider who supports the nonprofit sector in Washington to join us in allocating resources and designing solutions to bridge the gaps identified in this report. The members of the SCC are taking a stand, lending a voice and investing more.
We urge you to join us.
We encourage you to read the Leadership Scan as well as the corresponding blog posts below and think about the implications for the sector and our state.
