“Mid-sized” Indiana nonprofit organizations can range from $1-10 million in total assets or revenue and 5-25 employees. These nonprofits have the unique challenge of developing leadership, managing growth, and avoiding stagnation. The second webinar in IPA’s 2018 Capacity Building Series will outline solutions that you can use to help mid-sized organizations adapt, grow, innovate, and keep on doing what they do so well. 

Facilitated by Jen Pendleton of Aly Sterling Philanthropy, the conversation will feature a grant maker and a nonprofit executive providing input on specific tactics to increase midsized nonprofits’ capacity to fulfill their mission.


  • How you can help your mid-sized grantees become sustainable by helping them understand how to balance their mission, capital, and programs.
  • Challenges midsized nonprofits face in fulfilling their missions and solutions foundations can implement 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 small nonprofit organizations. Foundation staff members are welcome to host a “viewing party” for this webinar and invite their midsized nonprofit grantees to join them for this program.


  • Jodi Spataro, Chief Advancement Officer, Community Foundation of Elkhart County
  • Jennifer Vigran, Chief Executive Office, Second Helpings
  • Moderator:  Jen Pendleton, Aly Sterling Philanthropy
