Strengthening Nonprofit Organizations
A joint effort by Grantmakers of Western Pennsylvania and the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh – Nonprofit Resource Center, this program provided an opportunity for grantseekers to enrich their understanding about organizations in our region that support nonprofit capacity building efforts. Representatives from several local funding agencies provided an overview of their initiatives, briefly describing their giving priorities, types of capacity building support (grants/technical assistance), application guidelines, how and when decisions are made, and more!
The POISE Foundation recently announced the publication of their first position paper entitled, “Strengthening Black Families: A Case for Philanthropic Investment.”
On June 26th, GWP members had the opportunity to take a deeper look at the framework of this paper and discuss POISE’s rational behind their shift to a family-centered approach and the Strengthening Black Families (SBF) program strategy as a promising case example.
