Ten local nonprofits have been selected to participate in the Omaha Community Foundation Nonprofit Capacity Building Program’s upcoming class.
The program, now in its seventh year, is a 24-month curriculum offered by the Foundation and designed to strengthen organizational and leadership capacity needs. Each year, following nominations from community members and a competitive application and interview process, 10 local nonprofit organizations are invited to participate.
The nonprofits selected to participate in the 2017 program are:
- Live Well Omaha
- Nebraska Enterprise Fund
- Partnership 4 Kids
- Centro Latino of Council Bluffs
- Nebraska Alliance of Childhood Advocacy Centers
- Inclusive Communities
- All Care Health Center
- Stephen Center
- Ted E. Bear Hollow
- Promise Partners
Our Nonprofit Capacity Building Program is one of the most concrete ways the Omaha Community Foundation invests in local organizations. Through our hands on work with these 10 nonprofit organizations, we hope to amplify the impact their organizations have on their clients, and ultimately the broader community.
It is our goal that these nonprofits and their executive staff and board leadership walk away with the concrete tools, knowledge, and resources to ensure they are effective organizations that can adapt and grow with time, furthering their mission, and contributing to the overall success of our nonprofit sector.
The program includes monthly peer learning sessions focused on discussion of industry best practices and organizational challenges, executive coaching for nonprofit executive directors, and quarterly sessions with each nonprofit’s board leadership. As part of the program, each organization receives a $5,000 grant to support their capacity building efforts.
