Capacity Building Grants

The vision for MCCF is to be a proactive nonprofit leader and encourage philanthropy. We strive to assist in identifying the community’s needs, to serve as a catalyst and convener, and to provide a vehicle for donors to achieve their charitable goals all with the purpose of enhancing the quality of life for Montgomery County residents.

To this end, MCCF offers Capacity Building Grants to local nonprofit organizations in an effort to strengthen them in ways that increase their capacity to carry out their respective missions. The grants (maximum award of $1,500) will focus on these two areas:

Organizational Capacity

  • Marketing
  • Board Development
  • Fundraising consulting

Professional Capacity

  • Certification Programs
  • Fundraising Courses

It is a competitive process and the Capacity Building Grant online application is on the How to Apply page.
