What is “Capacity Building” and why is it important to us?

We build the capacity of our Healthy People, Strong Communities, Resilient Families and general nonprofit sector partners. We provide support for:

Outcomes and Learning
We are committed to tapping
into the power of outcomes measurement as a way to support continuous learning and encourage performance improvement.

Collaboration
We work in partnership with our grantees and philanthropic partners, and support collaboration in practice and in learning.

Communication
We support strategic communications that leverage outcomes to tell effective stories and advance our mission.

Public Policy/Advocacy
We support efforts to educate policymakers on relevant issues and influence institutions, systems and community and/or individual behaviors within the funding guidelines for private foundations.

Leadership Development
Based upon the belief that great leaders produce great results, we encourage comprehensive leadership development for organizations whose work advances our mission and impacts the communities we serve.
