The Kacmarcik Center Partners with NEWaukee to Launch the Nonprofit Executive LEAP Institute

Grafton, Wis. – The Kacmarcik Center, part of the Kacmarcik Enterprises family of companies, and NEWaukee, are launching the Nonprofit Executive LEAP Institute, a comprehensive community and capacity building program that empowers nonprofit leaders, board members, and executives to position their organization as a key contributor in their local community.

The cohort-based program is composed of immersive workshops and coaching sessions aimed at fostering leadership abilities, capacity building, and storytelling to help increase support for the non-profit’s mission and vision.

The program includes a kickoff meeting, plus pre-program evaluations, a relationship-building workshop on authentic leadership and community connection, weekly one-on-one coaching and small group sessions, a capacity-building workshop, and a program wrap-up event.

“The LEAP Institute is a reflection of the impact the Kacmarcik Center and our partners at NEWaukee are committed to making in the Greater Milwaukee metro through impactful non-profit and community engagement activities,” said Michael Sapiro, MA, the managing director of business development for the Kacmarcik Center. “We’re thrilled for this first cohort to experience the LEAP program and make a difference in their organizations and in our community.”

Registration for the program is now open and will run through May 10th for the program’s first cohort. Applicants should be in executive roles at a registered non-profit or community organization. A $3,000 registration fee qualifies one leader to participate in the program.

“For over a decade, NEWaukee has proudly supported nonprofit organizations to build and engage strong communities,” says Angela Damiani, CEO and co-founder of NEWaukee. “Through our new partnership with KCHP, we look forward to equipping nonprofit leaders, board members, and executives with the skills needed to accelerate their community-building efforts.“
