BCF SPECIAL PURPOSE FUNDS
BCF Capacity Building Partners Support to BCF annual Capacity Building Grants program helps organizations become more effective by increasing their internal capacity to function as a stronger, more effective organization. BCF recognizes that one goal most organizations share is to perform their work more efficiently and effectively. This capacity building grant cycle is part of a program to help achieve that goal. Improvements in the areas of administration, governance, planning, and fundraising are most desired. Therefore, this grant cycle will be focused on building an organization's internal capacity in these areas in order to strengthen and support our local nonprofit sector as a whole. Capacity building is distinguishable from direct program services, general operating support or capital expenses in that they typically seek to increase the knowledge, skill level and/or efficiency of a nonprofit board and/or staff. Capacity building services are typically provided by an individual outside of the organization that has the expertise and the ability to focus on one aspect of an organization's management. These include but are not limited to: -Board / Staff training -Strategic planning -Analysis of programs, technology and fundraising -Program evaluation
