Capacity Building

The Washtenaw Coordinated Funding model consists of seven (7) partners meeting the needs of our community’s most vulnerable in four (4) priority areas through three (3) funding components intended to: support human services programming; build nonprofit capacity; foster community collaboration and systems-level change.


As part of the Coordinated Funding model, the Funders seek to strengthen the Health & Human Services sector through capacity building grants.

Capacity Building grants are intended to increase a nonprofit’s effectiveness across areas of operations, leadership & governance, fundraising, and program/service delivery in the community. NEW | Solutions for Nonprofits provides Capacity Building and Project Management services to the selected grantees.
