Beyond The Classroom

To support our focus on action-oriented learning, we offer specialized classroom training to ensure our Members are primed for successful collaboration and capacity building, and help our grantees increase their skills and confidence as leaders.

Sessions for Every Stage

We know our diverse membership means training can't be one-size-fits all. Thats why our offerings support the needs of those new to the social impact space and seasoned professionals.


To offer the best content we tap into our own internal network and partner with other top tier instituions to give our Membership the context to accelerate impact.

Rising Leaders Sessions

In addition to discounted full membership to Full Circle Fund, Rising Leaders receive professional development trainings and mentorship to help them define their leadership style and advance their impact in the social sector. These sessions explore topics ranging from authentic leadership to professional communication, board training to nonprofit finance, and more.

Social Impact Fundamentals - New in 2018

The team is actively developing this new curriculum and it is designed to give our Members the basics they'll need to know as first time nonprofit board members. Our three sessions will focus on Board Governance and Roles, Theory of Change and Measuring Outcomes and a Fundraising Overview. We picked these topics based on our nonprofit partners wish-list for newbie board members.

Member Retreat

This weekend gathering is not only educational it's also a ton of fun. It includes interactive sessions and context building trainings designed for those in the know. 

Topics might include things like design thinking for social impact and deep dives on organization vetting.

Learn by Doing

One of the ways our Members learn the ins and outs of social impact is through our annual grant cycle. This program gives participants the opportunity to take a systematic approach from the multiple perspectives - funder, collaborator, and advocate.
