Vision 2040 Leadership has been awarded a $10000 grant from the Willmar Area Community Foundation. Funds from this award will be used to fund a program coordinator for the 2017 program year. Vision 2040 Leadership has found that the availability of a program coordinator to support activities, participants, and alumni has led to the success of the program.
Vision 2040 Leadership is a 9 month leadership program for individuals who live and work in the Willmar Lakes Area which is considered to be all of Kandiyohi County.
I made connections with community members and found many common visions. I have begun to get more active in the community due to the connections.
“We are proud to be part of the Vision 2040 effort here at the community foundation because it aligns with our core mission to engage people, connect resources and build community. It was an easy choice to invest not only financial resources to support Vision 2040 but also to lend significat board and staff time to help drive this effort forward. It's transforming our communities for the future our residents dream about-using their ideas and energies to make good things happen organically in real time and for years to come-and we want to be part of making that possible!”
“I'm honored to be part of Vision 2040 and the team that is forging the future of the Willmar Lakes Area community. We are a strong vibrant community that works hard and works together through partnerships and collaborative efforts. This spark of leadership for this is caused by people willing to risk failure to reach for success. We have seen there's no limit to what a group can do if the individuals don't care who gets the credit.”
