DESCRIPTION: Strategic Focus Grants are designed to help nonprofits address strategic initiatives and long-range organizational capacity building. They utilize resources efficiently and effectively to develop or implement long-term solutions that meet documented organizational and/or community challenges.
Strategic Focus Grants generally support:
- Actions that improve nonprofit effectiveness and efficiency and/or strengthen organizational infrastructure and long-term viability
- Initial staff expansion for organizational growth with a clear plan for the position’s sustainability after funding ends
- Collaborative projects or strategic partnerships to address complex, regional needs (e.g. projects that engage multiple organizations, public policy initiatives, etc.)
- Expansion (e.g. geographic) or enhancement of existing programs with a proven track record of success. We are particularly interested in supporting strategies to increase sustainability or self-sufficiency of existing programs (e.g. through diversification of revenue sources).
