We provide assistance to nonprofit coalitions and individual nonprofit organizations implementing high impact projects. Our Capacity Building Program awards mini-grants up to $2,500 to nonprofits seeking guidance or expertise in areas such as organizational assessments, board governance and strategic planning. There are a wide range of activities that can be supported with a capacity building grant. Grants may support up to 90% of total costs, which are usually paid to consultants or as fees for participation in training or events.
