We’re excited to share something that HiC has been hard at work on – Leading4Impact (L4I)!

L4I is a co-learning opportunity designed to increase Executive and Program Directors’ comfort, knowledge and skills for implementing and guiding planning and evaluation processes.

As non-profit leaders, Executive and Program Directors are responsible for creating a culture of planning and evaluation; managing change, developing a shared direction, aligning efforts, and ensuring the organization has the capacity to work with data.

Last month, we kicked off our first two-day L4I retreat with a keen group of pilot participants in Hecla. We’re eager to dig into each participant’s area of focus to strengthen their planning and evaluation culture over the coming months.

Stay tuned to future eNewsletters to hear more about L4I!

Time is running out to apply for our PRO BONO Services!

Not-for-profits have a positive impact in our communities.

In an effort to further strengthen the not-for-profit sector, Health in Common is providing pro bono planning and evaluation services.
Pro bono services can include facilitating stakeholder engagement, developing a strategic plan or evaluating an initiative.

Initiatives with services valued between $5,000 and $20,000 with a realistic plan to implement (within one year or less) will be considered. Health in Common allocates 10% of revenue to the provision of pro bono services.

The deadline for applications is November 29, 2019.
