Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation
Grants of $30,000 to North Carolina nonprofit organizational executives to provide salary compensation for three- to six-month leaves of absence. Funding is intended to enable nonprofit leaders to rest and renew their energy through activities such as travel, study, reading, reflection, and exploring personal interests.
The Foundation hopes that sabbatical recipients will return recommitted to the challenges and rewards of public service and thus prolong their tenure in the nonprofit sector.
The awarded compensation provides the financial support necessary for sabbatical recipients to temporarily leave their place of employment. Additionally, $10,000 is provided to the recipient's organization for planning and transition expenses. Of the $10,000, at least $5,000 must go toward activities that will enhance the recipient’s entire organization. For example, staff retreats, team-building exercises, mentoring opportunities, and/or other activities to support the staff.
Sabbatical recipients are selected annually based on a number of selection criteria, including the applicant’s professional accomplishments, evidence of the need for a sabbatical, potential for future contributions in his/her chosen field of work, and the difficulty of his/her work environment.
