Capacity Building Program
Once a core grant is approved, grantees have access to the foundation’s extensive Capacity-Building Program, which offers grantees one-on-one consultation with experienced providers of nonprofit management assistance; monthly trainings; and access to our Small Grants Program, which offers up to $5000 in supplementary grants for technical assistance, leadership development, and increasing capacity to engage in community organizing.
Our capacity-building partners include: Community Resource Exchange, Lawyers Alliance for New York, Center for Urban Pedagogy, TakeRoot Justice, and Advocacy Institute.
