Capital Improvements

Whether your nonprofit is buying a new building, purchasing new equipment, or updating a facility, the Foundation is interested in learning more.


Capital Improvement Projects and Campaigns can be a critical component of building capacity for a nonprofit organization. Whether purchasing new or larger buildings, investing in equipment, or updating a space, enhanced facilities and equipment allow nonprofits to better meet their missions. Capital grants tend to range from $10,000 to $100,000.

Capital campaigns, whether large or small, are time-limited efforts to raise funds to support something physical - land, building, or equipment. More importantly, these fundraising efforts launch the nonprofit into its next level of service delivery."
