In 2010, NCHS partnered with The Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette to establish the Douglas W. Eberle Board Governance Series to educate nonprofit board volunteers. The two organizations are partnering to develop nonprofit talent through the NCHS Nonprofit Executive Development Initiative. Through this grant program, NCHS will fully fund the cost of tuition for four local nonprofit professionals to complete the IUPUI Nonprofit Executive Leadership Certification Program.

North Central Health Services is offering 4 scholarships to area nonprofit executive directors, supervisors and emerging leaders interested in receiving their certification in Nonprofit Executive Leadership. Offered through the IUPUI School of Public and Environmental Affairs and the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy in Indianapolis, this program utilizes an accelerated curriculum to fit executives’ busy schedules. 

Four two-day seminars are held over the course of eight months beginning in April 2018. Course topics include Program Evaluation for Mission Impact, Financial Analysis for Nonprofit Leaders, Strategic Planning & Nonprofit Leadership, and Nonprofit Management for the 21st Century. Upon completion of the program registrants will receive their Certificate in Nonprofit Executive Leadership.

Last year’s recipients are Jen Bushore-Barry, Heartford House; Katy Bunder, Food Finders Food Bank; Kier Crites Scherger, Food Finders Food Bank; and Cassie Wade, Bauer Family Resources.
