Building Organizational Capacity

7780000935-R1-E006-374x300The Jessie Ball duPont Fund knows that funders can only be as effective as the organizations that they fund. It is in our best interest to help our community-based nonprofits, educational and religious institutions be smart, financially healthy and positioned for long-term success.

The Jessie Ball duPont Fund helps its Grantees build and sustain their capacity in multiple ways:

  • Providing grants to assist with strategic planning, financial development, succession planning, professional development and facilities management, among other things.
  • Providing small-dollar feasibility and technical assistance grants to help organizations inform decision-making and overcome obstacles.
  • Providing information, resources, and funding to support energy conservation activities for those organizations with physical plants to help them reduce energy consumption, reduce the carbon footprint and reduce costs.
