FLORENCE, S.C. – Twenty-seven South Carolina residents participated in commencement exercises for the fourth class of the Non-Profit Leadership Institute at Francis Marion University, April 21.
Remarks were given by Bradley Callicott, executive director of the Drs. Bruce and Lee Foundation, and FMU president Fred Carter. Institute participants were each presented with a certificate.
The institute is a seven-month training program for leaders of non-profits. Topics included leadership; program development and delivery; human resource development, including board members and volunteers; effective financial resource development and management; programmatic and organizational issues related to data collection and reporting; visibility, including managing external relations; and case studies.
Funded initially with multi-year grants from the Drs. Bruce and Lee Foundation, the institute now receives major support from FMU, along with a grant from the PSARAS Foundation.
Fred Sheheen, former commissioner and executive director of the S.C. Commission on Higher Education, is director of the FMU Non-Profit Leadership Institute.
The class will be conducted again during the 2006-2007 academic year. For more information about the institute, contact the FMU Foundation at 843-661-1481.
