In addition to the benefits of membership, grantmakers who join Leadership Council publicly demonstrate their support for capacity-building and leadership development across our region's nonprofit sector. Foundations and grantmakers’ membership investment is also on a sliding scale, based on annual grants awarded. Funders are invited to further invest in Leadership Council's work to build a stronger nonprofit sector with an additional gift or grant.
