CFWM Capacity Grants

Our friends at the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts have opened their application window for Capacity Grants.

The Capacity / Organizational Effectiveness Grants support nonprofits serving the Pioneer Valley to build specific skills, capabilities, and strategies to better execute their work. The goal of the grants are to bring the funded nonprofit to the next level of organizational effectiveness. Funding will support an activity/activities that advance organizational capacity as referenced in the CFWM Organizational Effectiveness Framework. Proposed activities must begin between January 1 and March 31, 202o and can be up to one year in duration. Preference will be given to applicants that can demonstrate greater level of readiness, organizational commitment and project planning and projects that have a greater impact on an applicant’s organizational transformation or address core organizational needs.

Grants will be between $2,500- $15,000. All applicants must schedule a pre-application phone conversation with the Capacity Grant Program Officer by August 30, 2019. The grant deadline is Sept. 6, 2020 at 5:00pm.More information can be found at: Only 501(c)3 organizations are eligible to apply.
