Donate to the Leadership Forum Scholarship Fund to help today’s change agents learn from attendees at Silver Bay.
By David Chmiel
The Leadership Forum at Silver Bay thrived for 100 years as a place where global executives unite to understand, shape and deepen the skills required to lead in an increasingly complex and changing world.
You can make your presence felt twice: Celebrate the Forum’s 100th anniversary from July 11-14 on the shores of Lake George, NY, and take a moment to make a donation in support of the next generation of global business leaders and change agents.
Over the course of 100 years, leaders from every industry have agreed that it is an imperative to “pay it forward” in order to share a life’s worth of knowledge with the generation that will be charged with growing and enhancing future opportunities. The new Leadership Forum Scholarship Fund has been established to students and other up-and-coming leaders who may not be able to afford the full cost of the conference. In just a week, we are 20 percent of the way to reaching our initial $20,000 goal. Whether you are an alumni of this unique conference, will be joining for the first time or simply want to make a difference in the lives of young people who are showing their desire to make a difference around the world, please consider making a donation to give future leaders the opportunity to find inspiration — or a mentor — to help them reach their potential. It costs about $750 to attend the conference. We have come up with four levels of giving to support these young people:
$1,000 - Become a “Chairman’s Donor”
$750 - Pays for one conference attendee
$375 - Pays for ½ of a conference attendee
$100 - Pays for a night’s lodging at the conference
Any gift that you can make is significant and matters. Please check with your employers to see if they can make a corporate gift, or if they have a program that matches your gift. Can’t make it to this year’s Leadership Forum? Become a Founding Giver today to begin the next century by stewarding future leaders and supporting the Forum’s guiding principle: Leadership matters.

Be sure to indicate that the gift is to be directed to the Leadership Forum.
