Capacity Building Workshops

The Capacity Building Workshops are designed to provide a foundation for faith-based non-profit organizations.  During these highly facilitated workshops, organizations are lead thought a series of phases from ministry vision, to obtaining grants, to program operations.  

The workshops require an application process and a small fee to cover the expenses of each workshop. For those organizations who we accept, we help them to develop systems, write and/or management the grant process, and plan for building organizational capacity.  Organizations will sign a contract for grant and capacity building consulting services. Our fee is based on a percentage of the funds we help you obtain.  No charge (other than the workshop fees) for near misses.  

General Agenda of Each Workshop:

1st Hour - Hands-on Support, Networking and Team Building

2nd - 3rd Hour - Training and Learning the Next Step

4th Hour - Hands-on Support, Networking and Team Building

During each workshop we will facilitate team building between organizations to maximize success.
