ELI for CEOs and Board Pairs

ELI for CEOs and Board Pairs
ELI for CEOs and Board Pairs is a year-long learning opportunity that focuses exclusively on community leadership for community foundation leaders.

A new offering in our Executive Leadership Institute program, ELI for CEOs and Board Pairs was created in response to demand from the community foundation field. Community foundation board members and CEOs have expressed a desire to deepen their community leadership practice together.


I was astonished by how much progress each leader made during a time period that was very challenging to navigate. My colleagues are inspirational as they continued pressing forward despite so many reasons or excuses to stop.
ELI for CEOs 2020 participant

ELI for CEOs and Board Pairs is an intensive learning experience for CEOs and one board member (preferably the Board Chair or Chair-Elect) to develop shared language and understanding of the core concepts of community leadership, thereby helping their institutions to step up, be bolder and lead change — a change that builds strong, resilient communities where all people can thrive.

The ELI for CEOs and Board Pairs cohort will meet three times over a year for two-day small group meetings. These meetings include time for structured peer advising – always a big hit with our participants!
