Building Nonprofit Capacity

We work with scores of nonprofit organizations every year. Nearly all agencies face challenges and opportunities in fulfilling their missions which help make Northeast Florida a thriving, vibrant place to live. By strengthening nonprofits, we assist people in need and help our donor have greater impact with their investments.

One way we impact organizations is by partnering with the Nonprofit Center of Northeast Florida to support a variety of capacity building initiatives in their strategic priority areas: High-Performing Leadership Teams, Access to Capital, Organizational Learning and Measurement, and External Awareness and Advocacy. With funding from The Community Foundation, the Nonprofit Center offers opportunities for staff and board members to take part in programs such as the Fund Development Professionals Intensive Program, Board Chair & CEO Retreat, Succession Planning Workshops, Risk Management, and much more.


“At the end of the day, Northeast Florida's nonprofits will be more prepared to survive and thrive in a post-recession landscape, better equipped to respond to fiscal, political, and environmental challenges, and significantly more united in their support for and connection to each other and the communities they serve."

- Rena Coughlin, chief executive officer of the Nonprofit Center -
