The purpose of this program is to strengthen nonprofits currently addressing the unmet health needs of the most vulnerable populations.
This program provides funding and technical assistance to organizations interested in committing time, energy and innovative thinking to assess and plan for increased organizational effectiveness.
Highlights from Year 1 of this opportunity include:

-Ongoing professional consultation from an expert in nonprofit capacity building
-Comprehensive organizational assessment and support in developing a capacity building plan
-Funding of $5,000 to be used at grantee’s discretion

The Foundation recognizes that capacity building can require a long-term investment.

Specific support and funding will be designed based on the needs identified by the learning cohort, within the following framework:
Year 2: Practicing how to change
In the second year, the capacity-building activities identified by the organizational assessment will be implemented. Organizations may work with a consultant of their choosing to most effectively put their plan into action.
