Cumberland County, PA – Area nonprofit organizations are invited to submit a Request for Proposal (RFP) to Leadership Cumberland for implementation as a Community Engagement Project. Leadership Cumberland will select several projects to be completed by LC fellows in an eighth month period(October-May) during the 2018-19 program year.
For nonprofit originations, this invitation to submit an RFP presents an opportunity to use the services of talented professionals from a variety of occupations and backgrounds. The teams can assist with projects that area nonprofits lack the resources and/or manpower to accomplish. Simultaneously, you can expose a group of established and emerging community leaders to your organization`s mission and goals. The experience is meant to be mutually beneficial for both the agency and these emerging leaders.
This year’s projects are unique as this is the first year Leadership Cumberland is inviting nonprofit organizations to submit project proposals. Leadership Cumberland believes projects completed in this way will have a greater impact on the community and will directly fulfill a needs that have been identified by area nonprofits.
Projects should have a reasonable scope and will not be accepted if they include any fundraising or physical labor(painting, gardening, etc.).
