As nonprofits are continually expected to do more with less, and access to resources has become even scarcer, the Santa Barbara Foundation was again pleased to support attendance of 11 nonprofit executives at a two-day cutting edge leadership conference at the Stanford Nonprofit Management Institute.

Titled “Partnering for Impact,” this year’s conference was geared toward learning creative new strategies for running and growing organizations through tough economic times. Conference sessions were developed specifically for nonprofit leaders and included building the right funding model; creating a volunteerism model for long-term social impact; working across issue sectors; and measuring impact.

The participants will give presentations to share what they learned with the nonprofit community.  Last year, more than 150 nonprofit executives attended the post-conference meetings, rating this innovative model for both leadership training and county collaboration as exceptional.  The nonprofit executives who attended the conference represent a range of issue areas from health and human services to the arts, education and the environment.  This is the Foundation’s third year of sponsorship investment.
