The Power of Investing in Nonprofit Capacity

Publication date: 

Nonprofit capacity building is more important than ever. How nonprofits work today and in the future is vital to their sustainability. Hear from two foundation funders who have made capacity investments in their grantees and from a nonprofit consultant who works to build the capacity of nonprofits. Together they will discuss how we can collectively address capacity constraints such as financial instability, disengaged boards, lack of funding for professional development, and the need for long-term planning. Session Objectives: • Understand capacity investments and why foundations should make capacity investments in their grantees • Learn how to evaluate a grantee’s readiness • Learn how to go about the work of funding capacity investments Presenters: Nell Edgington, President, Social Velocity, Austin, TX; Darryl Tocker, Executive Director, Tocker Foundation, Austin, TX; Ellen Solowey, Program Officer, Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust, Phoenix, AZ
