New website Leaderosity offers online training in nonprofit leadership, and is operated by the Presidio Institute, a firm that fosters cross-sector collaboration among leaders. The American Express Foundation gave initial gifts of $1 million to launch the platform. The new site currently offers courses from the Presidio Institute and the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance.
According to the Foundation, the website is an ambitious digital effort to train aspiring charity executives.
The Foundation’s president said the site will serve as a centralized, one-stop location for a diverse range of courses created by professional development service providers and, eventually, academic institutions.
Cost per course will range from free to a few thousand dollars. A 5-week class, “Management and Leadership of the Nonprofit Sector,” which costs $300, was the site’s inaugural course. The Foundation hopes to make available as many as 40 courses in several languages in the next three years.
