On July 18, we are celebrating the graduation of RVC’s Community Impact Fellows with a community dinner, “The Brightest Stars,” held at New Holly Gathering Hall.
Our Community Impact Fellowship Program trains leaders of color and places them for two years at host grassroots organizations led by communities of color, building the next generation of nonprofit leaders while increasing resources going to these organizations.
Our current amazing cohort of 13 talented leaders of color have:
- Collectively fundraised more than $1 million for more than 10 grassroots organizations.
- Transitioned many organizations from being volunteer-led to staff-led.
- Secured funding for a brand new RVC fellowship program, through advocating for and getting the Green Pathways Initiative passed.
- Created and implemented HR handbooks, policies and systems, including benefits; employees at local grassroots organizations are able to receive health care and dental coverage, life insurance, and more because of our fellows!
You can learn more about our Fellows and their impact here.
We are so excited to celebrate the accomplishments of these inspiring individuals!
Our emcees for the evening are RVC Community Impact Fellow Alumni Lourdez Velasco and SuYoung Yun, with performances by DJ Flip D’Skript.
Tickets to The Brightest Stars event are sold out, but you can still help us celebrate by making a donation today. Your contribution will support the monthly lunches that we host to help our fellows build professional skills.
