“I love this program — the timeline of it; its expansive goals and flexibility; the people engaged in making this happen. It’s quite a commitment from the organizers to the participants. I love the community that’s building.” 

Now in its second year, MNA is pleased to announce that applications are open for CATALYST, a leadership development program for Montana nonprofit professionals.

MNA CATALYST paves the way for a robust and resilient nonprofit sector in Montana. With a combination of dynamic and skilled content experts, thoughtful curriculum design, and opportunities to connect with peers and facilitators, MNA CATALYST bolsters the skill sets and confidence of both experienced and emerging leaders in the nonprofit sector.

Through a safe at-home immersion in May 2021 followed by monthly content, small group meetings, and one-on-one coaching with course facilitators through December, participants in our 2021 CATALYST Cohort will embark on a journey of personal and professional growth. This is what our flagship cohort of 2020 has to say about CATALYST:

I have valued….“the opportunity to build relationships across the distance, learn about what everyone’s going through, see challenges and processes from others’ perspectives.” 

“The self-reflection opportunities and resources have been exceptional. I love having time each month focused on skill-building and reflection.” 


If you are a current Executive Director or CEO of a nonprofit in Montana or on your way to that position, this program offers a chance to connect with your peers, support your growth, and focus on your goals as individuals and leaders of organizations.

Financial assistance is available, and the Montana Incumbent Worker Training Program may help cover costs for you.
