Your generous gift will help:

  • Empower emerging leaders to serve and benefit their local community through our community leadership programs.
  • Help create leaders of tomorrow by sponsoring at-risk youth participation in leadership development programs. Currently, our programs focus on homeless and foster youth, minority youth, and children of migrant workers.
  • Support scholarships for nonprofit sector leaders to participate in programs such as the Executive Leadership Program for Nonprofit Organizations — a professional development program for upcoming nonprofit executives and leaders to build their capacity to better serve their organizations and communities.
  • Contribute to the Leadership and Entrepreneurial Development for People Leaving Prison Program — a unique approach to work with nontraditional leaders in community. This program focuses on tapping into the latent entrepreneurial potential of persons leaving prison and helping these ex-offenders successfully reenter society as trained, inspired, and motivated self-employed community members.
  • Promote educational opportunities for university students. Your gift can support undergraduate or graduate student experiences at Fanning where they can gain first-hand exposure to contemporary social issues.
  • Ensure continuing education for the faculty and staff at Fanning — so that our training and technical assistance reflects best practices.
  • Provide training for youth to participate in the Athens Peer Court
  • Help fund “Leadership as a Way of Being” — a program for proven leaders.
