Community Project Information For Nonprofit Applicants

LB Class XLIII 2024-2025

Leadership Broward is now seeking project proposals from Broward County’s community agencies and nonprofit organizations for Leadership Broward Class XLIII.

Thank you for your interest in the Leadership Broward Class XLIII Community Project program. The Leadership Broward program is entering its 43rd year. As we continue to accomplish our mission “to develop and inspire individuals to serve our community,” we will again include the very important Community Project component into Class XLIII’s program curriculum.

During the past 42 years, Leadership Broward participants have completed more than 260 community projects.  The class is divided into eight groups of six to eight participants who work together over eight months (October 2024-May 2025) on the selected project.

A benefit of being a nonprofit selected by the class, beyond the impact of the project, your nonprofit will be a beneficiary of a SociallyGood. SociallyGood is a community event presented by Leadership Broward Foundation and it’s open to everyone.  Each month SociallyGood features a nonprofit partner who receives all of the proceeds from all SociallyGood guest fees collected from that evening.

All Leadership Broward (LB) class participants must participate on a community project team.  The purpose of this project team is to allow them to learn first-hand about an organization that supports the community.  Additionally, the project allows LB class members to engage in a process that will result in a quantifiable benefit to both the organization and the community.  This benefit would likely not be possible by the organization alone, and its success depends on the combined strengths of the organization and the individual talents and experience of the LB class members.  The projects are expected to have some sustainability after the group project has been completed and the LB Class has graduated.

  • Have the approval of the appropriate governing body.
  • Provide the name of at least one organizational representative whose time will be committed to the project.
  • It cannot be a fundraiser, but the class members in the group, at their discretion, may choose to raise funds to complete the project and/or add to the existing project. It should be able to be completed within the eight-month time frame mentioned above.
