The Foundation makes capacity-building grants for activities and projects that will help nonprofits enhance their internal operations to better fulfill their missions and achieve outcomes that are more impactful.
We believe that strong governance, effective management, and regular adaptation are essential in order for nonprofits to thrive, and we accept funding requests from nonprofits in a variety of capacity-building areas.
Requests may include a wide variety of expenses, including consultants’ fees and new staff salaries, with a maximum request amount of $25,000. Capacity-building grants are not intended to fund program operations or service delivery; equipment is a low priority.
Projects that provide the board and staff with tools and knowledge needed to achieve the organization's mission.
Projects that help an organization assess, respond to, and create change for continuous improvement.
Projects that help an organization develop specific skills needed to improve organizational effectiveness.
Projects that help an organization prioritize and learn how to incorporate the voices and perspectives of others, particularly those who are being directly impacted by the organization's work.
