Coaching and Philanthropy

Leadership that Works has been one of the lead partners on the Coaching and Philanthropy Project since it began in 2003. Out of our work with the Coaching and Philanthropy Project, LTW supports nonprofits through coaching training and leadership coaching.

The Coaching and Philanthropy Project was created to assess and advance coaching as a strategy for building effective nonprofit organizations. The project partners have conducted an unprecedented deep dive into learning about the nonprofit sector's support for and use of coaching, as well as the coaching field's knowledge of and work within the nonprofit sector. To consolidate and share this body of knowledge with peers in the nonprofit sector and the coaching field, the Coaching and Philanthropy Project has created easy-access materials. These include action guides for grantmakers, nonprofits, and coaches as well as an online toolkit that includes FAQs, tools, case studies, and reports to help inform nonprofit and grantmaking decision-making about coaching.

While we are excited to share what we have learned, we also want to be honest about the questions we still have and acknowledge that coaching in nonprofits is still very much an evolving practice. We hope you find these knowledge products useful and encourage you to share them with your staff, board members, funders, and peers.

Action Guides

These guides were created as a resource for and about coaching in the nonprofit sector. Each publication is tailored to and contains relevant information for three different audiences – funders, nonprofits, and coaches. Taken together, the three publications add up to a summary of the current state of coaching in the nonprofit sector.
