Request a Grant Writer

In-kind support to Kansas nonprofit and faith-based organizations, business associations, school districts, IHEs, and government agencies for capacity-building assistance. The program is intended to provide leadership training activities to help applicants embrace change, tackle problems, and seize opportunities. The goal of the program is to help applicants thrive and evolve in the future.

The program is a three-step sequence of dynamic program experiences—The KLC Path—taught by an inspiring and diverse team of teachers and coaches. Organizations that receive the grant will attend programs on the KLC Path: Your Leadership Edge, Lead for Change, and Equip to Lead. Programs must be attended in consecutive order and organizations are responsible for participant recruitment.

Each partner organization will establish a Core Team to take on the responsibilities of the grant. This team needs to be identified on the grant application and will be critical to the success and implementation of the grant. This Core Team, of 3-6 individuals, are responsible for:

  1. Attending KLC events and programs.
  2. Recruiting and support participants.
  3. Participating in regular evaluation efforts.
  4. Utilizing KLC resources, coaching, and consultation.
