Hi I'm Laura from and I would like to talk about how to write capacity building grants. A capacity building grant is one where your organization is looking for funding to increase its capacity to do the mission to achieve its mission. So there are specific funders or specific grants out there that will, that are geared just towards this purpose and you want to make sure to review the RFP to make sure that your request fits in with the capacity building funder's offerings. These tend to be more specific so if you are looking for funding for board training and that doesn't fall within what they offer you want to know that before you begin to write the grant. So review the funder's guidelines very carefully then you will want to make a case for why this capacity building project will help you as an organization, how it will ultimately help you serve so many more people, how it will change the whole structure of what you are able to offer in a way that is going to reflect positively on the funder so be sure to make your case for why it is needed and also how it will ultimately be a good reflection on the funder who has helped you to build up your capacity and how it will ultimately help your community in a very important way. So include details about this project, what you will achieve, why it is so important and how it fits with that funder's mission and those are some ideas about writing capacity building grants.
