According to data from the Nonprofit Finance Fund, 61% of US registered nonprofits have annual revenue less than $100,000. These nonprofits have deep roots within their communities and often achieve impressive results with limited resources. This webinar, the first in IPA’s 2018 Capacity Building Series, outlines strategies you can use to help small and emerging organizations adapt, grow, innovate, and keep on doing what they do so well.

Facilitated by Rebecca Kirby of Metamorphosis Consulting, the conversation features an Indiana grantmaker and a nonprofit executive providing input on specific tactics to increase small nonprofits’ capacity to fulfill their mission.


  • How you can help your grantees become sustainable by helping them understand how to balance their mission, capital, and programs.
  • Three challenges facing small nonprofits and solutions foundations can support to meet those challenges.

Target Audience:

This program is designed for foundation staff and foundation grant committee members wanting to implement capacity building strategies to enhance their investments in midsized nonprofit organizations. Foundation staff members are welcome to host a “viewing party” for this webinar and invite their small nonprofit grantees to participate in this program with them.


  • Kim Davidson, Program Officer, Dekko Foundation
  • Kim Irwin, Executive Director, Health by Design
  • Moderator:  Rebecca Kirby, Metamorphosis Consulting
