Side by Side is a 10-month engagement with monthly group meetings and monthly individual consulting support. The program’s premise is that change takes time. Together, consultant and participants will set goals and develop work plans around the specific focus area.
This opportunity is available to grantees of the Long Island Unitarian Universalist Fund (LIUUF) at the Long Island Community Foundation (LICF). Side by Side is administered by the Center for Nonprofit Leadership. Grantees do not apply for money. They apply for an opportunity to build capacity in a specific focus area. For the inaugural cohort, five grantees were selected.
