Supporting Leadership Houston
Leadership Houston’s Signature Program and alumni events are almost entirely volunteer driven with alumni serving in roles throughout the year to ensure that each participant’s experience is as rich and powerful as their own. Without the support of our corporate partners and individual donors, we would not be able to provide the kind of programming that Leadership Houston has come to be known for.
Your investment in Leadership Houston and our fellows has a direct impact on the kind of leadership qualities we know Houston requires. Your support allows us to continue the transformational work of enriching the lives of our city’s leaders through an ambitious program designed within the context of our city’s diverse strengths and challenges.
Leadership Houston is tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. It is eligible to receive contributions deductible as charitable donations for federal income tax purposes.

Leadership Houston runs two primary fundraising initiatives and facilitates any fundraising attached to the current class' project:
The Annual Giving Campaign is designed for individual donors and provides an opportunity for alumni and friends of the program to provide critical funds to support the current year program.
The Corporate Sponsorship Program is designed for organizations interested in partnering with Leadership Houston to support the current class while engaging in a mutually beneficial relationship designed to facilitate effective corporate social responsibility strategies. Financial and in-kind sponsorship opportunities are available.
Each Leadership Houston class must complete a class project to graduate. These projects vary in nature and are conceived, planned, and executed completely by the class itself within the year. An important part of this experience is funding the project, including the creation of a case for support and solicitation of donors.
