IHS Nonprofit Capacity Building
Capacity building is the activities that strengthen the infrastructure and operations of nonprofit organizations which ultimately make them more effective, efficient and better able to fulfill their mission. It involves development of an organization’s core capabilities such as staff and board leadership, financial management, fundraising, use of technology and evaluation. Capacity building is facilitated through technical assistance, organizational and leadership development, coaching, training, networking, strategic planning and management consulting.
To set the foundation for effective capacity building efforts, it is essential to have a thorough understanding of your current capacities in key areas of governance and management, finance, strategy and organizational infrastructure. The Institute’s approach is to capacity building is based on the following process.
1. A “kick-off” meeting for Executive Directors and designated board members from participating organizations to explain the process and the organization’s role in completing assessment tasks.
2. This will be followed by a concise set of online and hard copy core assessments and others as needed, to be completed by the board and staff.
3. Senior Staff from the Institute will meet on-site with board and staff, building on completed assessments and providing for individual consulting and priority setting.
4. All input will be reviewed and recommendations made by the IHS consultant group Recommendations will then be provided to the organization and we then work with organizations to identify providers to meet their particular needs.
