Extended Deadline - Don’t Miss This Opportunity!
The Nonprofit Roundtable has extended the application deadline to April 30th for our 2014-2015 Future Executive Directors Fellowship Program.
This fellowship is designed for accomplished nonprofit professionals who aspire to become executive directors of small or medium-sized community nonprofits.
Fellows participate in an intensive program designed to prepare them for executive leadership. During this nine-month long program, Fellows dive into fundraising, communications, human resources, financial management, negotiating effectively, building partnerships, and achieving work/life balance.
Success story: 2008 Fellow Amanda Andere was appointed Executive Director of FACETS in 2009. Amanda formerly served as the Vice President of External Affairs and Community Resources at Cornerstones, formerly Reston Interfaith. "I cannot thank the Nonprofit Roundtable enough.

Mayor Vincent Gray's FY2015 Budget Proposal
District Mayor Vincent Gray has released his FY2015 budget proposal, making key investments in a number of critical areas: education, health care, cash assistance for families with children, and affordable housing. View DCFPI's blog post, "A First Look at Mayor Gray's Budget" for an overview of the mayor's proposal. As the DC Council looks to make changes to the proposed budget, there are opportunities to advocate for increased funding for programs that are not fully funded in the proposed budget, particularly services for homeless families and implementing paid sick days and minimum wage laws that have been passed by the District.
