Executive In Residence Program

Scranton Area Community Foundation, through its Center for Community Leadership and Nonprofit Excellence, launched its brand new Executive in Residence Program in 2019, which invites nonprofit organizations in the region to apply for one-on-one support from one of our highly skilled, contracted Executives in residence free of charge, through the support of the Moses Taylor Foundation and the Scranton Area Community Foundation.

The one-on-one direct support offered by our professionals and experts in specific fields and disciplines is intended to assist regional nonprofit organizations with specific issue areas, upcoming projects, or areas where the organization may wish to grow its capacity. The Executives may provide hands-on assistance, expertise, coaching and/or knowledge to help accomplish a particular organizational goal and to help build the organization’s capacity for the future. Nonprofit organizations accepted to the program will be authorized for a particular number of hours with an Executive with the expertise that would best meet their needs. Examples of topics include, but are not limited to, financial management, strategic planning, team building, leadership development, and fundraising planning. All support provided by an Executive in Residence is held in strict confidence. The Scranton Area Community Foundation will only track information relevant to running the program, such as time worked by the Executive and the establishment and success of meeting targeted goals. The Foundation will not be made aware of specific items discussed between the organization and the Executive, and will not need to be made aware of the goals created between the Executive and the organization. Additionally, an organization’s application to the program will be held in strict confidentiality.  

Nonprofit organizations who wish to be considered for this opportunity can submit an application through our website
