Sabbaticals offer individuals the opportunity to primarily focus on their personal needs and solely devote themselves to self-revitalization. The awarded compensation provides the financial support necessary to temporarily leave one’s place of employment. It is the Foundation’s hope that sabbatical recipients return recommitted to the challenges and rewards of public service and thus prolong their tenure in the not-for-profit sector.
The awarded compensation provides the financial support necessary for sabbatical recipients to temporarily leave their place of employment. Additionally, funds are provided to the recipient's organization for planning and transition expenses. Of these funds, 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.
