Strengthening the Nonprofit Sector and Nonprofits by Empowering Leaders - Leading and Learning
Nonprofit Montgomery puts nonprofits "at the table” with leaders in media, business, and government, to create effective in our region. We provide seasoned and emerging leaders with opportunities to sharpen their leadership skills through high-level, high-quality programs and network with each other to foster community. We do this through:
- Developing capacity where there are gaps
- Creating unique learning and leadership development opportunities
- Nurturing and supporting Peer-to-Peer learning
Each year, Nonprofit Montgomery organizes several Tables for Ten - an opportunity to have a completely confidential and candid series of facilitated discussions with peers. By coming together for support and problem solving, nonprofit leaders are more effective in pursuing common goals as well as our own. Innovated by the Nonprofit Roundtable, each “table” meets three times over breakfast or lunch. Participants commit to attending all three sessions. Tables are filled on a first come, first served basis. Past Tables for Ten series have been organized for CEOs of Nonprofits with Budgets under $2 million; CEOs of Nonprofit with Budgets over $5 million; New CEOs; Deputy Directors; and Board Chairs. New Tables for Ten are announced in our weekly e-newsletter; The Roundup.

A group of nonprofits united for the purpose of using their collective power to obtain cheaper and greener electricity. In the past two years the Nonprofit Energy Alliance has offset 35 million pounds of CO2, the equivalent of removing more than 3,000 passenger vehicles off the road for an entire year and reached an estimated savings of $500,000 in energy costs. These results helped the Energy Alliance earn a 2012 Washingtonian Magazine Green Award.
