Social Innovation Learning Cohorts

A cohort model that works with groups of organizations that share similar capacity needs.

Social innovation

Our commitment to social innovation recognizes that the complex challenges of today’s society demand new kinds of solutions, and that the most fertile ground for developing these solutions is often found at the margins of our efforts and organizations: in non-traditional or collective approaches, emerging technologies, and cross-disciplinary partnerships.

The Forbes Funds takes a practical approach to social innovation, acting as a platform and catalyst to encourage the development of new tools, new models, and new funding that positively impact large numbers of organizations and by extension the communities they serve.

Hi, I am Dr. Hannah Karolak and I lead learning & education programs at The Forbes Funds. Our learning programs support current and future nonprofit leaders through coaching, mentorship, technical assistance, and professional development. Through partnerships with local universities, we are creating access to higher education for nonprofit professionals. Let me and our team of coaches support you in your journey to securing career mobility and greater leadership capacity.

Vision: The Forbes Funds learning and education programs support leaders as they navigate the changing demands of nonprofit work. Each of our learning programs include an aspect of coaching or mentorship, technical assistance, and professional development certification through digital badges, university credits, or continuous education credits. We use rapid prototyping to develop cohorts quarterly that respond to real-times needs of the sector. Through partnerships with our funders, we continue to offer these opportunities at low or no cost.
