The Community Foundation of Greater Memphis seeks to address the organizational strength and overall health of nonprofits in the Mid-South by supporting their capacity building efforts through financial grants. Reviewed by a committee of community volunteers, these grants are awarded to established nonprofits for one-time projects that address a part of the organization’s strategic plan to improve the management, governance, and administration of the organization, not direct programmatic improvements. By strengthening the internal capacity of an organization, the Community Foundation believes the programs and services will also be strengthened.
Project examples include but are not limited to:
- Evaluation of core programs
- Staff or board training
- Assessment of technology systems or implementation of technology upgrades
- Human resources planning, succession planning, or fundraising planning
- Merger or formal collaboration between organizations
