Thomas G. Monaco Memorial Scholarship


Tom Monaco was the lead presenter for the EXCEL leadership development for many years, and sadly, he died unexpectedly in March 2017. The Thomas G. Monaco Memorial Fund was established in his memory, to be used to support nonprofit leadership development training and continuing education in Greater Cincinnati. The fund is used to provide a scholarship each year for EXCEL candidates to further their leadership skills. 

Tom’s life was characterized by his passion for education, his dedication to faith, and care for family and friends. During his time as a volunteer consultant and trainer, Tom worked on more than 15 consulting projects and served as a program manager, lead presenter and coach for the EXCEL series with our partnership in the Nonprofit Leadership Institute of Greater Cincinnati. Through his work with NLIGC, Tom supported the leadership training of more than 200 individuals from 125 area nonprofit organizations in our area. He also served as a board member and volunteered for a number of local community organizations including the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati, WordPlay Cincy and Linden Grove School. 

To give the opportunity for leadership development through our EXCEL program to deserving nonprofit agency leaders, donate to the Thomas G. Monaco Memorial Fund.
