CompassPoint Nonprofit Services
CompassPoint Nonprofit Services intensifies the impact of fellow nonprofit leaders, organizations and networks working to achieve social equity. Its integrated practice offers strong teaching, coaching, consulting, and peer-learning—all grounded in deep nonprofit leadership expertise.

Regions Served: Greater San Francisco Bay Area and San Joaquin Valley

CompassPoint is working with up to 60 grassroots organizations on both leadership and organizational development, as well as with the 16 organizations being supported by California Rural Legal Assistance (CRLA) and Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC), which are Community Leadership Project intermediaries working in the San Joaquin Valley.
Much of CompassPoint’s work takes place via a meaningful collaboration with CRLA and ILRC, and by listening for the true needs and interests of the grassroots organizations involved in the project. CompassPoint will provide these organizations with fully subsidized participation in the following programs designed to meet the needs of leaders of color and organizations serving communities of color:
- Executive Director 101
- Management 101 for Emerging Leaders
- Peer Learning Circles
- Fundraising Academy for Communities of Color
CompassPoint partners with Community Leadership Project grantmaking intermediaries to identify potential program attendees. Participants are selected through an open and competitive application process.
