The Fred R. Sheheen Non-Profit Leadership Institute Applications Open

Posted By Chuck MacNeil, Tuesday, July 2, 2019

Dear Allies, 

Get excited for another amazing opportunity!

The Fred R. Sheheen Non-Profit Leadership Institute (NPLI Institute) at Francis Marion University is now accepting applications for its nineteenth season.

This very valuable program is something that hundreds on Non-Profit executive staff throughout South Carolina have taken advantage of. The classes this year will be in Lake City, SC in a newly renovated facility specifically redesigned for this type of training experience. The NPLI format obligates participants to attend eleven full day sessions spaced over a seven-month time-frame. Thusly, each session is spent with a different instructor covering a variety of subjects that every non-profit leader can benefit from. The faculty include experienced non-profit leaders, seasoned university faculty members, and public officials.

The sessions include practical insight on processes that non-profit leaders benefit from and take home to apply within their own organization. Case studies provide more in-depth examples of successful practices to enhance the effectiveness of overseeing a non-profit entity.

Lunch is provided each day during which guest speakers are invited to address attendees on additional subject matter relevant to the non-profit sector.

A key benefit from the NPLI program is networking with fabulous people who are passionate about their own organization and their mission, and who share mutual desires to learn how they can improve their own efforts to advance the goals of their non-profit work. The class size is capped at 30 to ensure that each participant can have a productive experience. Therefore, applying early is greatly encouraged.

As the NPLI program is supported by FMU and the Darla Moore Foundation, tuition is relatively inexpensive at $350 for the entire program.
