Communities of Color Nonprofit Stabilization Fund Grant App Due Dec 6, 2017

Posted on December 3, 2017

Capacity building funding opportunity for nonprofits!

Applications are now open for the Communities of Color Nonprofit Stabilization Fund (CCNSF) and CRE encourages all nonprofits who are eligible to apply.

The CCNSF aims to build the capacity of New York City nonprofits, in recognition of the fact that organizations led by members of the community
are best equipped to meet the needs of their constituents. This initiative has supported capacity building projects for over 215 nonprofit organizations
to date.

The application deadline is December 6, 2017.

This fund ensures that organizations serving communities of color receive the support they deserve. CCNSF makes grants of up to $35,000-$45,000 (based on the organization’s budget size) in order to allow work on significant capacity building projects.

CRE welcomes the chance to work with awardees in the following areas:

  • Financial management and planning
  • Evaluation and outcomes system development
  • Leadership development
  • New program planning and development
  • Strategy and organizational development
  • Collaboration and strategic alliances

Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to attend one of the Community Briefings to learn more about the grant and application process.
