Sabbatical Program from the California Wellness Foundation

Interestingly, the following was left as a comment to another post. I will be happy to post opportunities such as this. Just contact me through the contact form on my capacitypartership.com website. Thanks.

Applications are now available for The California Wellness Foundation Sabbatical Program. The program offers $30,000 grants to nonprofit health organizations, to provide their executive directors with a paid leave of up to six months. The organizations will also receive up to $5,000 each for the professional development of managers and staff who will assume extra responsibilities in the absence of the sabbatical awardees. Deadline for applications is March 24, 2006.

Based on a model established by the Durfee Foundation in Los Angeles, The California Wellness Foundation Sabbatical Program was founded in 2003 to keep burnout, stress and fatigue from undermining the effectiveness of the leaders of nonprofit organizations. Since the inception of the program, the Foundation has given 20 sabbatical awards.
