Please give to the Tim Brennan Leadership Fund.

Your donation allows Leadership Pioneer Valley to grant at least one scholarship each year

to an emerging leader dedicated to public service.


Tim is a founder of Leadership Pioneer Valley. Along with other visionary leaders, he saw the critical need for a regional leadership program that would challenge and engage emerging and existing leaders from all sectors of the community—corporate, government, small business, non-profit, and academia—through civic leadership development for the benefit of the Pioneer Valley region.


The Tim Brennan Leadership Fund was created to honor Tim’s more than forty years of public service. The fund supports individuals who would not otherwise be able to participate in Leadership Pioneer Valley’s LEAP program-- this includes public officials, municipal employees, and other public servants.


Each year, Leadership Pioneer Valley selects 30-40 emerging and existing leaders from the private, public, and non-profit sectors of the region who have applied to participate in the nine-month LEAP program. Diversity is a key goal of LPV.


While taking part in LEAP, participants expand their leadership skills while gaining connections, deepening their commitments to community stewardship, and enhancing their cultural competency.


We invite you to honor Tim’s legacy. He has worked to build an “army of leaders” who engage with critical issues—transportation, health, education, food access, housing, economic development, energy, climate impacts—that affect the region.


Your gift ensures access a critical sector, giving each the chance to develop the knowledge, skills, and relationships to represent their communities with power and wisdom.
