New Leaders Council


New Leaders Council is almost entirely volunteer-run. NLC uses resources extremely effectively, so much so that we are able to fund training for all Fellows through 45 chapters across the country. 

It costs NLC $2,000 per Fellow in the NLC Institute; your contribution will continue to support our mission of recruiting, training and promoting the next generation of leaders. Our goal by 2020 is to train 10,000 progressive leaders in communities across the United States. NLC is creating an exciting network of individuals, highly-skilled in working together across sectors to improve the progressive infrastructure and ensure strong democracy, social justice, and equal opportunity.

Please take a minute donate. Your gift of every size is appreciated and will be put to great use in our community. There are many ways to give to NLC Houston!

Ways To Give

New Leaders Council, unlike many leadership development programs, does not ask our Fellows to pay tuition. We believe that economic status should not dictate access to our training or success in our movement. We're glad you agree! Here are three ways you can donate to help us carry out our mission.
