who are selflessly donating their knowledge, skills, time and energy to elevate leadership competencies in the non-profit sector.


Since our launch on March 28, the Coach Giving Leadership Program has matched 33 leaders and emerging leaders from 18 different non-for-profit organizations –

In addition, my hats off to Peter and Elizabeth – our most talented volunteer Project Managers who have shown us how to run the Coach Giving Leadership Program most effectively through Excel Systems and Trello Boards while the CGLP online Portal is under repairs.


Your generosity truly represents what ICF Vancouver stands for – giving back – and what the ICW represents – raising awareness of coaching in the community – and as always, I am eternally grateful!

    What a great program – we get to build our reputation and ICF’s brand while giving back to the community, and even receive an honorarium! So happy to be part of the ICF Coach Giving Leadership Program. Thanks Sunaina!

    Thank you Elizabeth for contributing positively to the Coach Giving Leadership Program.

    I agree it is rare to give back and get a benefit as well.
