William T. Grant Foundation Opens Applications for Youth Service Capacity-Building Grants
The Youth Service Capacity-Building Grants (YSCG) program supports activities to strengthen the organizational infrastructure of nonprofit organizations in the five boroughs of New York City that provide direct services to young people ages 5 to 25. The long-term goal of the YSCG program is to help build stronger, more stable youth-serving organizations that will ultimately improve the lives of young people. These grants provide general operating support to allow grantees the flexibility to determine the best way to allocate the funds to address their capacity-building needs.
Applicants should describe their organization’s mission and youth programming. The Foundation expects that applicants will do some type of formal or informal assessment to help identify their capacity-building goal(s). Capacity-building goals may include: financial management, board recruitment and development, human resource management, staff training, fundraising, strategic planning, information technology, leadership development, communications, and evaluation systems. We welcome other compelling needs beyond this list. Strong proposals will make the case that addressing and accomplishing the goal(s) will result in a strengthened organization that can yield stronger services for youth.
The online application is now open. The next application deadline is September 30, 2019, 3:00 p.m. EST...
