The Gift of Learning program offers nonprofits the unique opportunity to access online training and development at no cost. For nonprofits, the need for this type of program is quite real. Most nonprofit organizations lack the resources and the capacity to consistently and effectively invest in their people. Even with the best executive leadership, many need the tools to help them empower their employees and thereby increase their impact in the communities they serve.
Through our Gift of Learning program, the Foundation donates thousands of hours of e-learning content annually to nonprofits domestically and abroad. Nonprofit beneficiaries can choose up to five individuals (employees, volunteers, or clients) to access the Gift of Learning library which contains over 100 e-learning courses on a wide variety of topics including courses on leadership development, effective communication skills, project management, and desktop products. Participating individuals will be able explore the rich learning content and to take as many courses as they wish through a dedicated Cornerstone OnDemand web portal.
Some of the nonprofit organizations that have been selected to participate in the Gift of Learning include:
- Boys Town
- Stand for Children
- Union Rescue Mission
- Boys and Girls Club
- Alberta Recreation & Parks Department
It is our hope that through this program, we can play a role in strengthening communities around the world by providing the support and tools necessary to ensure a thriving and vibrant nonprofit sector.
