Thinking about developing your future leaders? Here are some suggestions. And stay tuned for a new emerging leaders program coming soon from NonProfitConnect!

The Four Principles of Purpose-Driven Board Leadership (SSIR)

Every once in a while, our pardigms are turned upside down. This article "The Four Principles of Purpose-Driven Leadership" by BoardSource will change how you see the role of your nonprofit in the ecosystem and in addressing equity. http://ow.ly/u7tw50ERplH

In the face of increasingly pressing systemic inequities, nonprofit boards must change the traditional ways they have worked and instead prioritize an organization's purpose, show respect for the ecosystem in which they operate, commit to equity, and recognize that power must be authorized by th...

Alex Sims is a 10 y/o child who needs a bone marrow transplant to survive IPEX, an extremely rare autoimmune diseases. A transplant is his only hope for survival. He's been on the registry for 2 years and still no DNA match for him.. If you are 18 to 44 y/o, in good health and willing to donate to save a life, please register with be the match at www.COTAforTeamAlexS.com (top of the page is a link to Be the Match). Marrow donation is relatively painless nowadays, through an IV they remove blood, filter out cells and return your blood to your body and Be the Match pays all the donor's expenses. Did you know a bone marrow transplant costs $800,000? (that's really true). Alex dad is a single parent who is legally blind and doing all he can to raise a sick child. Alex also has diabetes as a result of his IPEX, so any donations at all would be a big help. Even $5 or $10 adds up and helps. If anyone is willing to have a fundraiser to help raise transplant expense funds, please contact me. We are fundraising through Children's Organ Transplant Association (COTA) a 501c3 charity. All money raised or donated goes into a fund to help Alex's family for the rest of his life....COTA takes no fees or percentages. YOu can check out the www.COTAforTeamAlexS.com to read Alex story, confirm COTA's status and contact me if you have time to help with a fundraiser. Please keep Alex in your prayers and share with everyone (probably need to cut and paste to FB) encouraging everyone to register as a donor and/or help with fundraising or donations. Someone out there could be the one to save Alex's life through marrow donation. Thank you.
Mark your calendars! The Wellness Village is the perfect opportunity for you and your loved ones to learn more about diabetes and maintain a healthy lifestyle! We are also looking for volunteers. If you are interested, please visit http://signup.com/go/qKewCij
