How Can the Millstone Leadership Initiative Help Your Organization?

Jewish Federation of St. Louis is proud to support the work of our nonprofit boards across the spectrum of the entire St. Louis Jewish community through the Millstone Leadership Initiatives and the Community Impact Department. We are the community’s first stop for identifying resources and opportunities to build strong leaders, successful boards, and effective staff teams.

Let our staff help your board with:

  • Governance & Board Roles
