New GEO Publication Examines Culture, Systems and Power in Capacity Building Practices
Strengthening nonprofit organizations is not just a nice-to-have but an essential part of our work as grantmakers to ensure that nonprofits have the resources they need to address today’s most pressing social concerns. GEO’s latest publication, Reimagining Capacity Building: Navigating Culture, Systems & Power, builds on the principles outlined in Strengthening Nonprofit Capacity and takes a critical look at the ways in which capacity-building practices can be grounded in approaches that acknowledge and center racial equity.
Exclusive for GEO Members
In addition to the publication, GEO members have access to two supplementary resources to help further the conversation about equitable capacity building practices.
A Guide for Trustees Reimagining Capacity Building: Navigating Culture, Systems & Power: Learn how boards members play a role in ensuring foundation capacity building efforts are aligned with organizational values and that capacity building work reflects the importance of racial equity.
Executive Summary: Explore principles that can help grantmakers engage in capacity-building efforts through a racial equity lens.
