2014 Emerging and Innovative Environmental Leaders

by Environmental Leadership Program

Thank you so much for your continued support of the Environmental Leadership Program and for the investments you have made in the success of our work through your generous contributions.

This will be the final report for our 2014 project as we are excited to launch our new 2015 GlobalGiving Project http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/emerging-and-innovative-environmental-leaders-2015/

Our goal for this project is $20,000, the amount we anticipate providing in scholarship funds to ensure that no individuals selected by our selections committees are denied the ability to participate in ELP due to financial burden. In 2015, we anticiate welcoming up to 130 NEW Fellows to the ELP Community.

We hope you will continue to support ELP's work and will join us on March 18, 2015 for our first GlobalGiving Matching Day of the Year where your contribution will be eligible for a 30% Match http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/emerging-and-innovative-environmental-leaders-2015/


Thank you again and we look forward to keep you posted on our progress and success!


2014 was a remarkable year at ELP with the launch of new regional networks like our Pacific Northwest Program for leaders in AK, OR and WA; a new 3 year partnership with the William Penn Foundation to launch our Delaware River Watershed Network; and the selection of new classes of Fellows in our New England, Eastern and Chesapeake Regions Regional Programs and a 2014 National Fellowship Class.

In addition to our Fellowship Programming, ELP grew and expanded its Senior Fellowship Programing which included our 2nd All Community Retreat, our 4th Annual Women's Retreat and countless meet ups gatherings for the nearly 700 members of the ELP Community. 

In 2014, 89 members of the ELP Community volunteered their time and talent to helping our organization and community thrive and over a 100, like you, helped support ELP financially. 

As we turn our eyes to 2015 we are excited to select up to 7 new classes of Fellows, expand our Senior Fellows Programming and actively work to create new partnerships and collaborations for leaders around the country. 

We are currently accepting applications for all of our 2015 Fellowship Programs so if you, or someone you know is looking for an incredible learning experience and a community of practitioners unlike any other in the country - NOW IS YOUR TIME!

With over 100 new Fellows joining our community and at least one retreat every month this year - we hope you will consider renewing your gift to ELP knowing that each month we will put it to the best use possible - the investment in our most valuable resource the vast potential that exists in each of us.

Thank you and happy New Year!!!

September was an incredibly busy month for ELP with the addition of our newest staff member Michael Gagné, our 4th Annual Women's Retreat, the 2nd retreat of our 2014 Eastern Regional Network, and the start of our 2014 National Fellowship Class.


In addition to our programmatic endeavors, ELP is also excited to have expanded our facilitaiton team with the addition of 2 Senior Fellows, Lylianna Allala and Shin Shin Hsia who shared their expertise on diverstiy and inclusion. 


As ELP enters the 4th Quarter of the year, we have one more very exciting announcement up our sleve - but you'll just have to wait until December...

Dear Friends, Fellows and Community,


Some people really love summer, others fall, and then there are a few that crave winter (no judgement), personally I'm all in for spring.

Like the trees that lie in wait for their leaves to return, spring is the time at ELP when all the hard work of recruiting and outreach pays off - it's when we get to meet the new AMAZING Fellows joining the community.

In addition to welcoming our 9th New England Regional Class and selecting our 11th Eastern Regional Class we held our 2nd Annual All Community Retreat, received funding for our 3rd round of Innovation Grants, created a partnership to hold our 4th annual Women's Leadership Retreat and are planning the launch of our 5th Regional Network... 

While many Fellows' organizations are able to cover their fee, while others pay out of pocket, many organizations and individuals are unable to cover the full cost. Our Chesapeake Regional Network will be selected on June 16th and we anticipate needing additional scholarship funds to ensure that no individuals selected are prevented from doing so due to financial constraints. We hope you will help contribute to our scholarship fund today!
