The Northern New York Community Foundation has awarded a full-tuition scholarship to a nonprofit organization with fewer than 25 employees to enable their participation in the Greater Watertown-North Country Chamber of Commerce’s Jefferson Leadership Institute (JLI). The 2017-18 recipient is Jordan B. Walker, executive director of the Jefferson County Historical Society.
“This is an additional way we can support the health of our smaller nonprofit organizations and their leaders as an extension of our grantmaking efforts,” said Rande S. Richardson, Community Foundation executive director.
“The Jefferson County Historical Society is beyond grateful to have received the Community Foundation Scholarship for the JLI Program. We hope that JLI will help our institution form stronger synergies with other nonprofits and businesses, and furthermore, aid our overall professional development and community outreach initiatives,” said Ms. Walker.
