Opportunities

ACT supports and encourages nonprofit excellence and strengthens leadership within nonprofits by investing in infrastructure based programs and organizational needs.

Our Capacity Building Grants support nonprofits seeking to implement capacity building measures within their organizations. These tangible activities (software, equipment, marketing resources, consultant project, new staff, etc.) are linked to needs identified within the organization, often through a strategic plan or assessment. 

In response to feedback from our Listening & Learning Tour, this year, ACT will be piloting a spring and fall grant cycle. This will provide nonprofits the opportunity to determine which grant cycle works best for their organization. All applications must be submitted online through Foundant, our grants management system.
