The Gratitude Network Fellowship Program is a free 1 year program for non-profit leaders and their organizations anywhere around the world. The program builds leaders’ confidence and capabilities and provides tools and processes for expanding the organization’s impact.

Their organization was conceived on the eve of a milestone birthday. Their Founder and Executive Director, Randy Haykin, had just turned age 50. He had been a serial entrepreneur and venture capitalist, and he wanted to shift his career to charitable giving and making more impact on the lives of marginalized populations. Randy created his own “Gratitude 365” experiment, and challenged himself to blog/post one thing he was grateful for daily during an entire year.

Randy soon realized that he could turn gratitude into action. He approached his network of talented colleagues, friends, and neighbors in the Bay Area and asked them to band together to impact social causes. Before long, the Gratitude Network was born.

Gratitude Fellows have increased leadership confidence and lead more effectively. They have more aligned teams ready to execute a multi-year strategic plan to take the organization to their next level – ultimately increasing the children and youth they impact.

Each year, Gratitude Network conducts a global search for established, social impact leaders who demonstrate a proven organization model serving children and youth who are committed to leadership growth and ready to take their organization to the next level. From over 1,000 applicants annually, we select around 30 to participate in our program.
