Grant Description

In-kind grants to Texas nonprofit community organizations serving Dallas, Collin, Rockwall, Tarrant and Denton Counties working in the areas of children and family, culture and humanities, education, health and well-being, and social services. Grantees will receive pro bono consulting services to address business management or operational needs.

Through the EIA Service Grant application process, nonprofit applicants define projects that require the expertise and support of senior level executives. Selected Service Grant recipients will be paired with EIA volunteer consultants, who possess specific skill sets to meet the requirements of the request.

EIA engages experienced business executives as volunteer consultants from various backgrounds, including: financial management, business planning, human resources, marketing and communications, governance and more. The expense of hiring a consultant with the level of expertise and leadership provided by EIA volunteer consultants is not within the financial budgets of most nonprofit organizations.

EIA volunteer consultants are brought on board after an extensive vetting process. After this process, EIA volunteer consultants are matched with nonprofit Service Grant recipients that benefit from the executive’s skill set.

Grantees must provide an effective on-boarding process for the executive and ongoing support necessary to meet the goals and time constraints of the project. Organizations will identify an internal project manager who will liaison with the executive, and spend sufficient time to allow the project to proceed in a timely manner. EIA volunteer consultants are not intended to serve as full time staff members to the nonprofit. Responsibilities of the EIA volunteer consultant should not displace responsibilities of current staff.
