Capacity Building Grants
The Community Foundation allocates funds for Capacity Building Grants based on income generated by the Foundation's unrestricted endowment and donor directed contributions.
The Foundation encourages grant requests that help organizations establish and maintain a solid structure and develop and sustain good governance practices. We believe that when capacity building is successful, it strengthens and improves a nonprofit's ability to achieve its mission, sustain itself over time and have a quantifiable impact on the community in which it serves.
Capacity Building funding opportunities include:
- Projects designed to improve the organization's ability to monitor and respond to the needs of its clients and supporters;
- Projects involving adoption of management innovation, process improvement and accountability;
- Strategies to form collaborative ventures with public, private or other nonprofit institutions;
- To support technology audits and analyses of information management systems;
- Purchases of computers (hardware or software) or other equipment necessary to improve the organization's ability to achieve its mission; and
- Efforts to diversify the organization's revenue streams.
Examples of Capacity Building include:
- Financial planning;
- Organizational assessment;
- Strategic and long-range planning;
- Program evaluation and planning;
- Developing marketing plans;
- Leadership development;
- Mergers/collaboration; and
- Feasibility studies.
