Leadership Mendocino is a small, local non-profit program. Since its inception in 1992, it has relied primarily on donations and sponsorships from local businesses and organizations, and alumni and community members who want to invest in the future leadership of Mendocino County. Participant tuition also provides a major portion of annual funding. Nearly six hundred Mendocino residents have gone through the program, spreading their accumulated knowledge and leadership to thousands of other around Mendocino County and beyond. 

 There are many ways you can support this long-standing, dynamic leadership development program.

Scholarships of up to $500 are made available each class year to qualified applicants who do not have the ability to fund their tuition through other sponsorship avenues.
Class day sponsors are a vital part of our success by providing funding to offset costs of putting each class:  site rental, support materials, and of course, food! Class day sponsors received recognition at every opportunity:  during the class day; on the Leadership Mendocino web and Facebook pages; at every Leadership Mendocino event. A full day sponsorship is $500; half-day sponsorships are also available. For more information, contact Program Director Kimberly Smith at 707.467.3230 or email her at
