Capacity Building Grants

The Community Foundation allocates funds for Capacity Building Grants based on income generated by the Foundation’s unrestricted endowment and donor contributions. 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 it serves.
