Do the nonprofits you support have what they need to thrive and produce results?

The nonprofit sector has consistently struggled with retaining strong staff, fundraising effectively, and achieving long-term sustainability.

We know that grantmakers can bolster nonprofit effectiveness and results by supporting capacity-building initiatives, thus ensuring their grantees have what they need to deliver on their missions over the long haul. We're therefore happy to offer this dynamic workshop in both LA and Orange County as part of our statewide partnership with GEO.

In a session presented by GEO's Meghan Duffy, Associate Vice President of Programs, and Kristen Scott Kennedy, Senior Manager, we'll tackle the essential issues that drive the design of effective capacity building support:

  • the benefits of contextual, continuous, and collective capacity support;
  • examples of capacity building work underway in your region; and
  • peer sharing about successes and challenges.

We hope you can join us for this highly interactive half-day workshop about what it takes to strengthen your capacity building program.
