Partner with the current Leadership Flint & Genesee Cohort

Each Leadership Flint & Genesee cohort seeks Request for Proposals (RFP) to select the cohort’s community impact project. We invite you to submit a potential project for our participants to complete during their upcoming class year.

Potential projects should:

  • Benefit an established 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency, located in and serving Genesee County.
  • Fulfill a specific community need in Genesee County.
  • Be able to be completed between November 2024 – May 2025.
  • Be large enough in scope for 10 people to actively play a role in the project. (May include committees such as: logistics, budget, finance, marketing, and others.)
  • Have the ability for the class to develop it further and/or modify the scope as determined during project development with general agreement from your organization.
  • Be something that the nonprofit would not otherwise have the resources to accomplish or would allow the nonprofit to put their resources to better use.
  • Be something that, upon completion, your organization will take over and manage as required going forward.
  • Not be purely fundraising, though the class will raise funds and materials for the project.

To submit your proposed project, please download this application and return via email to by or before October 18, 2024.
