Thank you, donors, to the EMERGE Leadership Project’s FIRST fundraising effort ever !

Funds raised through the Seattle Foundation’s May 5, 2015 GiveBig Campaign are prioritized as follows:
1) funding scholarships to support participation in EMERGE Leadership workshops by government employees and those representing non-profit organizations;
2) defraying costs for producing and distributing “Practicing Emergent Leadership” a Guide for Green Building Practitioners and Advocates to allow for no and low-cost distribution;
3) supporting community workshops that bring the message of emergent leadership to stakeholders hoping to address community development issues, typically contentious, in a more collaborative, solution-oriented manner. We are already in discussions with stakeholders in one community to hold such a workshop.

Thank you again! We’ll be reporting back on progress on these priorities.

Although GiveBig is complete for this year, on-line donations to the ELP will continue to be welcome at the Seattle Foundation/Emerge Leadership donation portal
