Call for Papers on Leadership Development for The Foundation Review | Deadline Extended!

Submitted by: LLC Staff on Nov 15th, 2012 at 2PM PST

Call for Papers: Volume 5, Issue 3

Abstracts of up to 250 words are being solicited for Volume 5, Issue 3 of The Foundation Review.  This issue will be a themed issue on Leadership Development. Foundations have supported nonprofit leadership development for many years through a variety of mechanisms, such as operated programs, general capacity development grants, targeted grants and sabbatical programs. Leadership programs may focus on general leadership development or be targeted to developing leaders within a specific content area, such as environmental leadership, arts leadership, etc.  More recently, programs have aimed to foster community leadership.


Papers are invited on topics including but not limited to:

  • What are the results of different ways of supporting leadership development? Are different outcomes achieved in operated programs vs. grant support that allows the leader to choose their own experiences?
  • How can grant support be structured to enable nonprofits to make the best use of the funds?
  • Do content-specific leadership programs achieve different outcomes than general leadership programs?
  • What are effective ways of demonstrating the value of leadership development support?


Submit abstracts to by November 21, 2012 (extended). If a full paper is invited, it will be due March 30, 2013 for consideration for publication in September 2013.
