The Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina recently announced the 2012 class of the Carolina Academy for Nonprofits Leadership Development Program.

“We congratulate and welcome these leaders selected to participate in the Nonprofit Leadership Development Program,” said Tom Keith, president of the Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina. “Through this program, individuals will be equipped with the skills and tools to not only lead today, but to prepare for the future.” While the program is free for participants, they must go through an application process and only a small number of participants are selected each year.
The Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina’s Carolina Academy for Nonprofits leverages training and educational opportunities to meet the needs of multiple nonprofit organizations addressing poverty in South Carolina. The foundation goes beyond grant making and provides nonprofits with tools and resources for success in different areas. This includes free daylong workshops in a variety of areas including board governance, ethics, evaluation, financial management, grant writing and partnerships and sustainability.
The Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina is a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System.
