In Guilford County, well over 600 nonprofits actively engage in the life of our community. Some are large, complex organizations and others are small entities doing good work among us.
Many of us generously contribute financially to nonprofits, and sometimes we may wonder about the effective use of funds.
Capacity building — a broad term that encompasses actions nonprofits make to increase effectiveness — can focus on organizational and financial stability, program quality and growth. When it’s successful, it strengthens a nonprofit’s ability to fulfill its mission and serve the community. Capacity building is an investment in the effectiveness and future sustainability of our nonprofits.
