PARTNERShip benefits

Over 5,000 graduates of Cleveland Leadership Center programs are members of the CLC Alumni Association. Those who become CLC PARTNERS have new and exciting was to educate, connect and engage. 

Exclusive access
The CLC Online Alumni Directory is available only to CLC PARTNERS. Search for fellow leaders by name, organization or program. Want to meet another CLE leader? Look him/her up and send a note as a fellow CLC alum. This "golden Rolodex" (remember those?) is a relationship-building tool on steroids. 

Exclusive events
Lunch with Leaders: Enjoy an intimate lunch discussion with just 15 PARTNERS and one community leader who likely has been in the news. Topics vary. Past speakers include Eric Gordon, CEO of the Cleveland Metropolitan School District; Deborah Read, Managing Partner of Thompson Hine; and Ivan Schwarz, Executive Director of the Greater Cleveland Film Commission. Someone you want to dine with? Let us know and we'll make the ask! 

Behind the Scenes: Ever wonder what lurks in the cold storage room at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History? PARTNERS get guided tours behind the scenes -- sometimes even before places are open to the public. 

Exclusive opportunities 
In partnership with Cleveland Clinic, CLC offers free VIP Tickets to the Cleveland Clinic Ideas for Tomorrow series with the world's most distinguished thinkers. PARTNERS have a chance to get reserved seating and meet speakers at a VIP reception. Speakers have included Diane von Furstenberg, Daniel Yergin and Arianna Huffington. 

Exclusive discounts 
PARTNERS get discounted tickets to CLC events, and access to pre-event networking. 

A portion of you CLC PARTNER donation pays it forward by providing scholarships for Look Up To Cleveland high school students, (i)Cleveland college interns and Civic Leadership Institute programs. 

PARTNERship donations are gifts to the Cleveland Leadership Center, which is a 501(c)3 nonprofit. Your PARTNERship contribution is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
