Capacity Providers: Who's doing what and where?

Some funders are connected with certain circles of capacity building providers, and others are less familiar with who provides these services. Broadly, the types of organizations that provide capacity-building assistance to nonprofits include:

  • Nonprofit consulting groups
  • Nonprofit intermediaries
  • Research institutions
  • Academic centers and schools and programs that focus on organizational development and nonprofit management and administration
  • Nonprofit associations
  • Independent consultants
  • For-profit consulting groups

If you’re seeking more information about the specific providers, one source is the National Network of Consultants to Grantmakers, a freely accessible source of vetted consultants serving all types and sizes of grantmakers. But, we hope you'll comment in this discussion, too, to share links and descriptions of providers that you know, and if you are one, more about your practice.
