The Washington County Community Foundation (WCCF) is pleased to announce the creation of a new grants program from its Community CARE Fund (CCF) to help build the capacity of charitable nonprofits in the area.

Up to $1,000,000 will be issued in CCF capacity building grants during this initiative, which is anticipated to be completed over the next two years. If the capacity building grants program proves to be successful, another round of grants may be announced in the future. CCF capacity building grants will normally range from $25,000 to $50,000, and may be paid over a period of years. Only 501(c) (3) charities which are not classified as private charities under section 509 (a) of the tax code, and which provide services in Washington County, are eligible to receive a CCF capacity building grant.

A capacity building grant could enable smaller charities to reach the next level of operational, programmatic, financial or organizational maturity. However, this initiative is not limited to smaller charities. Qualified charities of any size which are operating in Washington County are eligible to apply.

Potential capacity building projects include a communications plan to relate more effectively with constituents, a development plan to grow the charity’s donor base, or a volunteer recruitment plan to increase volunteerism. Capacity building grants may be awarded to assist charities with leadership succession, to update a charity’s technology, to improve how a charity measures its outcomes, or to improve a charity’s accounting procedures. Any activity that increases the charity’s internal capacity will be considered.

Charities who wish to apply for a CCF capacity building grant are encouraged to attend the Foundation’s CCF Capacity Building Grant Workshop on Wednesday, January 17 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Southpointe Golf Club. There is no fee to attend the workshop but charities are required to register through the WCCF’s website at www.wccf.net.
