The Big Picture: El Pomar's programs are all different, but each was created with the same goal in mind: to support leadership and community development beyond grantmaking. The Foundation's first program, Awards for Excellence, launched in 1989. Awards recognizes and rewards nonprofit organizations that set the standard for excellence across the state. Honorees receive money and a well-deserved pat on the back, and it is often difficult to determine which is more valuable.
The Details: Other programs provide hands-on leadership training for recent college grads (the Fellowship), continuing leadership development for nonprofit CEOs (NELP) and a place to connect would-be community leaders with the education they need to join a board or run for office (Forum for Civic Advancement).
