Flintridge Center’s Community Services Program provides educational programming and resources for close to 400 nonprofit agencies throughout the San Gabriel Valley each year.
This multifaceted approach to capacity building is an important way that Flintridge works to improve the quality of life for children, youth and families.
Our programming draws from more than 20 years of experience in the field, as well as from the TCC Group’s 2010 study on the state of capacity building in Los Angeles County, commissioned by the Weingart Foundation, and an external evaluation of our services conducted by the Human Interaction Research Institute (through Valley Nonprofit Resources).
In addition, we continually solicit feedback from our constituents about their professional development needs.
Among the program enhancements we have recently implemented are longer consulting sessions, expanded training for board members, and tiered workshops and trainings tailored to organizations at different developmental stages.
To build local leadership, we have introduced two new programs, Millennium Leadership and Building Better Boards. In addition, we support the Pasadena Executive Roundtable, an informal consortium of local nonprofit executive directors who meet monthly to share common concerns around leadership and management issues.
Consulting sessions with a diverse pool of nonprofit experts.
A professionally-staffed Philanthropy Resource Library with free access to a wide array of information and grantseeking resources. This cooperating collection of The Foundation Center has been called ‘one of the most significant in the Western United States.’
Quality and affordable meeting space for organizations to gather, plan and solve problems.
Our vision is communities made stronger by the people and organizations we serve.
The Community Services program is made possible through the generous support of the S. Mark Taper Foundation Investing in Leadership Program, The Ralph M. Parsons Foundation and the Weingart Foundation.
