Colorado Health Foundation invites applications for Sabbatical Program

The Colorado Health Foundation invites applications for its Sabbatical Program. It aims to recognize and reward long-term and respected nonprofit leaders in Colorado and strengthen their organizations by offering interim leadership and staff capacity-building funds.

The program allows nonprofit executives to step away from professional responsibilities and take time for themselves for rejuvenation. Ideally, the executive returns to their professional life with new ideas and a fresh sense of commitment to their work, the nonprofit sector, and all Coloradans’ health and health equity. Through the program, grants of up to $100,000 will be awarded to support the grantee executive to take a three-to-four-month hiatus for activities of their choice to reflect, rest, and rejuvenate; grantee interim leadership needs and grantee staff capacity building needs. In addition to providing funding for the above sabbatical activities, the program includes a one-month executive-in-residence at the foundation, designed by program grantees and foundation leadership and staff as a mutually beneficial co-learning experience.

Up to five sabbaticals are awarded annually.

To be eligible, individual applicants must be a Colorado-based executive director, CEO, or tribal administrator of a nonprofit organization working to bring health and health equity within reach for Coloradans, have served at least three years in the current executive role (five years preferred), have at least seven years experience in an executive leadership role within the nonprofit sector, and be a full-time employee and resident of Colorado. 

The organization must be located in Colorado, provide services and/or programs that bring health and health equity in reach for Coloradans, and operate as a public charity, not a private foundation under Internal Revenue Code 501(c)(3). Organizations must employ at least three full-time employees (FTE) or a mix of part-time employees that add up to three FTE, at least 50 percent of the population served must be living on low income, and at least 60 percent of the services and programming conducted must directly occur in Colorado.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Colorado Health Foundation website.
