The Nonprofit Institute at the University of San Diego, Fieldstone Leadership Network San Diego, and RISE San Diego joined together to create FORTIFY - a collection of offerings to strengthen the leadership, well-being and sustainability of nonprofit leaders and organizations. 

FORTIFY was curated in response to requests from nonprofit leaders for support on issues from adaptive leadership and good governance to legal guidance and fundraising in a virtual world at the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.

FORTIFY: The Racial Equity Series aims to provide nonprofit leaders with a foundational understanding, tools and resources necessary to lead in the areas of race relations and equity while strengthening the leadership, well-being and sustainability of nonprofit leaders and organizations committed to the work of equity and social justice. FORTIFY: The Racial Equity Series was curated in response to requests from nonprofit leaders for assistance in supporting their work in the areas of diversity, equity and inclusion and in recognition of the tremendous difficulty under which nonprofit professionals are working to sustain organizations, manage teams and serve clients in equitable and just ways. 

Proceeds from FORTIFY: The Racial Equity Series will support the work of this partnership to promote racial equity education and advocacy in the San Diego region.
