MCLP Class of 2021 RFP with PDF form

Dear Nonprofit Representative, 

Leadership matters more now than ever, especially as linked to the essential work being conducted by nonprofits during the Covid-19 outbreak.  In this light, MCLP is inviting our community partners to submit a project proposal that can assist your organization in recovery efforts.  We will continue to review all kinds of proposals, but given that the pandemic is central to much of our work, we would like to emphasize this opportunity to seek assistance from MCLP.  We are also interested in reviewing proposals that have a positive impact on the African America community.  To date MCLP has helped more than 45 local organizations; to see prior projects, click here

Please note that we are continuing to include "shadowing the board" as MCLP teams work with their nonprofit partners. Therefore, if your proposal is selected, the team assigned to you (typically 5 participants) will work with you to determine how best to attend a board meeting.
