Nonprofit Capacity Building for Greater Impact

Types: SVPI Resource

Capacity building involves the development of people, systems and resources that keep a nonprofit organization strong and able to successfully deliver its programs. A nonprofit with capacity is better able to identify and take advantage of opportunities and achieve lasting community impact. Often the skills required for capacity building projects are not present in the staff of a small nonprofit, so consultants and volunteers (like SVP Partners) can help.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the role of capacity building in nonprofits
  • Identify the features of a successful capacity building initiative
