Let’s be honest, finding the resources you need to sustain your nonprofit is challenging. Capacity building grants can be a solution to help you manage your organization’s future and meet the ever-changing demands of your community.

Since the pandemic, funders have increased their focus on providing more resources to help nonprofit organizations maintain and build their capacity to provide services. This renewed focus on capacity building makes it an ideal time to capitalize on this trend and apply for funding to help your organization operate more effectively and efficiently.

But there are unique differences between capacity building grants and regular, programmatic grants that you must understand if you want to write a successful proposal.

During this webinar, Alice Ruhnke will define and discuss the fundamentals of capacity building grant proposals. She will introduce you to a practical approach with examples based on real experiences.

You’ll learn:

  • how to craft compelling capacity grant proposals;
  • the common pitfalls you must avoid in order to get funded; and,
  • how to find the perfect funders who want to help you build capacity.

If you have a basic understanding of grant fundamentals and would like to apply those concepts specifically to capacity building grants then this webinar is for you. After the session, you’ll be empowered to create more effective proposals to increase your organization’s capacity.
