The 2012 Children, Youth & Families Capacity Building Grant Program
For the past 10 years our Regional Grants Program has funded a broad range of nonprofits in the 10 towns surrounding Sudbury.
Beginning in 2012, we will narrow our grant focus to support agencies serving Children, Youth and Families. Our goal is to help shift the life trajectories of young people facing economic and personal barriers to success.
We’ve spent the last year reading, listening and chatting with grant partners, issue area experts and other funders to help craft a funding strategy that will best serve children, youth and families in our catchment area. Based on that input and feedback, our new Program will invest in Capacity Building projects that nurture leadership, enhance management and operational effectiveness and, most importantly, strengthen the financial sustainability of youth-serving agencies.
We’ll be hosting two grants cycles in 2012 using a Request for Proposal (RFP) process. Preliminary details can be found here.
We’re pleased to introduce this new program and invite you to contact us with comments, questions and suggestions.
