Tools to help nonprofits sustainable futures.
Think Inside the (Tool) Box
The Community Foundation’s commitment to strengthening and supporting our region’s nonprofits includes more than giving financial grants. The Nonprofit Toolbox provides nonprofit organizations with tools to strengthen their management, governance and operations.
Most Nonprofit Toolbox awards are not cash awards; rather, they’re custom-designed packages of management consulting to help solve a key organizational challenge or problem.
Organizations selected to receive a Nonprofit Toolbox grant work with a specialist to construct a package of customized assistance. The specialist oversees the award and delivery of professional services to ensure the organization’s outcome is achieved within the designated time frame.
Nonprofit Toolbox prioritizes requests in the following areas:
- Board development
- Strategic planning
