Founded by a social worker, Capacity Building Consulting provides services that build organizations' capacity, increase funding, and demonstrate organizations' impact in the community. These goals support social organizations in reducing the burnout, stress, lack of resources, and lack of meaningful evaluation that are far too common in the sector. To this end, we've helped social organizations raise millions of dollars, evaluate programming to demonstrate and improve effectiveness, and build capacity to continue fundraising and evaluation efforts on their own.
Capacity Building Consulting provides services to support nonprofits, social enterprises, and socially minded businesses in efficient and effective fundraising and evaluation, including coaching and training for board, executives, staff, and volunteers. Our fundraising services include: planning, funding opportunity research, coaching, material development (e.g., grant applications, sponsorship packets), grant reporting, and donor appreciation. Our evaluation services include: planning, coaching, data collection material development (e.g., surveys, interview scripts, data tracking tools), leading data collection efforts, evaluation plan implementation, analysis, and reporting. Capacity Building Consulting also offers online courses and webinars to build capacity with organizations interested in a do-it-yourself approach.
