Capacity Building Initiative
In 2018, the Foundation introduced a new Capacity Building Initiative to provide local non-profit organizations with resources aimed at strengthening organizational functioning. In the first year, close to 40 non-profits benefited from a series of nine in-depth, hands on workshops focused on issues including fundraising, succession planning, marketing and board engagement. The Initiative also includes a new onsite Non-Profit Lending Library and Resource Center (NPLRC) that provides print and online resources to local organizations. Due to the success of the new Capacity Building Initiative, it will continue into 2019 and beyond.
