The Departing

Exiting nonprofit leaders as resources for social change

As the leadership of the nonprofit sector passes from one generation to the next, departing leaders take with them their knowledge, networks, and experience.

Grantmakers for Effective Organizations' report, The Departing: Exiting Nonprofit Leaders as Resources for Social Change, tackles the challenges and opportunities that come with a shift in leadership across many organizations, and the entire nonprofit sector. The report also presents new research on how departing nonprofit executives are thinking about their futures and continuing to work for community good and social change.
