Nonprofits led by communities of color face significant challenges that can’t be solved by traditional capacity building methodologies.
One-time grants or projects are not the answer, as our communities are constantly changing and shifting, requiring the organizations to follow suit. Dynamic grassroots organizations need ongoing solutions customized to their structure, community, and budget.
RVC’s capacity building support goes hand-in-hand with our Fellowships and Operations Support Programs. Together we work with our partners to identify strategies, goals, priorities, and key elements of their organization, as well as building systems or infrastructure that allows organizations to better carry out their mission in sustainable and equitable ways.
Some capacity building services include, but are not limited to:
- Organizational assessments
- Strategy or vision support
- Work plan support
- Board training
- Team building and communications support
- Succession planning
- Facilitating team retreats
We usually work on 2 to 3 processes over a 2-year span.
