    Interested in funding a cohort of 2024 WILD Fellows?

    Our WILD Fellowships (full scholarships) are intended for global development professionals from aid-recipient countries who cannot (and whose employers, usually local NGOs) afford the cost to participate.

    Philanthropic organizations and individual donors can make a tax-exempt donation to the Women in Global Development Leadership Fund, a fiscally sponsored project of Community Initiatives.

    Your financial contribution to the Women in Global Development Leadership Fund, will directly expand access to WILD Fellowships by covering 100% of the costs for people who identify as female and are based in the global South. Fellowship recipients shall participate in the 2024 Women’s Global Leadership Forum and a 6-month program of leadership development, networking and career-building activities. 

    Donations can be made to Community Initiatives, a registered tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Community Initiatives (CI) sponsors initiatives for the benefit of communities in service to social change. CI is based in Oakland, CA | EIN: 94-3255070.

    Fellowships include access for select candidates to the WILD Network’s award-winning 1:1 leadership coaching program. This leadership coaching supports people poised to make an even more significant impact in their fields. Through ten months of 1:1 Leadership coaching sessions, participants develop their leadership mindsets, skills sets and behaviors with the support of a certified leadership coach in order to achieve their professional and personal leadership goals. As a cohort member, the coaching program participants also build meaningful relationships with a community of global development professionals committed to becoming even more impactful leaders.
