The Raymond John Wean Foundation is committed to strengthening Mahoning Valley nonprofits in sound operations, thoughtful strategy and strong leadership to better achieve their missons. We view capacity building as a process to reach new levels of organizational effectiveness.
The Capacity Building Fund provides consultation and technical assistance in the capacity elements of:
Funding is available to organizations who are:
- Tax-exempt nonprofit under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code;
- Primarily working within the Foundation’s strategic priorities;
- Non-discriminatory of race, religion, gender or gender identity, sexual orientation, age, national origin or disability; and
- In compliance on all terms and conditions of any previous Foundation funding and/or grants
With 2018 funding of over $150,000 in support of nonprofit capacity building, Valley organizations are on their way to reaching new levels of effectiveness. As a result, new applications will be deferred for 2019 funding consideration.
