2017 Fall Grants: Capacity Building

2017 Fall Grants Available  for Nonprofits to Build Local Capacity

The VNA Foundation of Greater North Penn provides a spring and a fall grant cycle each year to support local nonprofit organizations having the capacity to strengthen lives along a continuum of need, thus building stronger and healthier communities in this region for generations to come.

Each Fall, the VNA Foundation provides up to $10,000 to those local nonprofit partners in the community successfully applying to the foundation for support in a specific area. Since the VNA Foundation Board has committed itself toward strengthening nonprofits which may need to build operational, programmatic, financial, or planning capacity within their organizations, the 2017 Fall Grant cycle will focus on awarding funds to nonprofits serving the North Penn region of Montgomery County which may seek capacity-building grants to more effectively and efficiently fulfill their mission.

Up to $10,000 will be available to each successful, qualifying nonprofit organization applying to build the capacity of their organization within areas such as the following:

  • Mission, Vision, Strategic and Business Planning
  • Governance and Leadership Training and Development
  • Risk Management and Program Evaluation
  • Strategic Restructuring and Coalition Building Within the Community
  • Fund Development Opportunities
  • Technology Improvements

    Interested nonprofit organizations may go online to the VNA Foundation’s website, at www.npvnafoundation.org for additional information after August 1, 2017 to read more about qualifying for the Fall 2017 Capacity-Building grants, or call the VNA Foundation office to discuss possible projects at 215-847-4401.
