Central New York Community Foundation Accepting Applications for Sabbatical

June 3, 2013 – The Central New York Community Foundation invites executive directors and senior management staff of nonprofit organizations in Onondaga and Madison counties to apply for the 2013 John F. Marsellus Sabbatical.  The deadline for submitting applications is October 31, 2013.

The Marsellus Sabbatical offers nonprofit executive directors and senior management staff the choice between a four-week or  an abridged two-week sabbatical for professional development and personal renewal. The sabbatical is designed for a nonprofit executive to partake in professional and personal development that stimulates a process of enrichment, refreshment and renewal. In addition to the cost of the sabbatical, $1,000 – $2,000 may be available to the recipients’ organizations to support administrative and other expenses incurred while the Executive Director is absent.

The Community Foundation invites executive directors and senior management staff of nonprofit organizations in Onondaga and Madison counties to apply for either a four- or two-week sabbatical by October 31, 2013. Applicants must have served in a senior management position of a nonprofit organization in Onondaga or Madison counties for at least five consecutive years and have the approval of the board of directors of their agency. The application guidelines can be viewed on the Community Foundation’s web site at www.cnycf.org/marsellus  or may be obtained by calling the Community Foundation at (315) 422-9538.

This annual grant was established in 2000 in memory of John F. Marsellus, who wished to enhance the leadership capacity of nonprofit executives in Central New York by underwriting a month-long opportunity for personal and professional reflection and development.
