Webinar: Meaningful Foundation Support for Effective Nonprofit Capacity Building

October 17, 2017 — 1:00 PM EST

Learning for Action (LFA), in partnership with the Polk Bros. Foundation, will present results from a recent study on nonprofit capacity building, which included the perspectives of nonprofits, funders, and capacity building providers. The presenters will share trends, best practices, and specific recommendations for how each of the three stakeholder groups included in the study (nonprofits, funders, and capacity building providers) can improve capacity building for individual organizations and support a stronger system of capacity building in the nonprofit sector. A portion of the presentation will also highlight, from both the consultant and foundation perspective, the role that consultants play in enhancing capacity building services for their nonprofit clients.

Through this webinar, participants will have an opportunity to:

  • Learn about trends and best practices in nonprofit capacity building compiled in a recent study
  • Explore the key drivers of nonprofit capacity
  • Understand ways that consultants and funders can better support nonprofit capacity in their everyday work
