Capacity Building Fund
The Capacity Building Fund supports the setting up of Philanthropic Development Offices (PDOs) across Non-Profit Organizations to fulfill their missions successfully and sustainably. New and struggling PDOs are provided with seed money to kick-start their relationship building with donors, and engagement process with donees.
Often, when a Non-Profit Organization sets up a PDO, the challenge is the inability to assemble the desired team because of financial constraints. Without a full-time team that is trained to handle philanthropic work, it will be a struggle to connect professionally with donors, as well as to conduct consistent outreach to the beneficiaries.
The Capacity Building Fund, while not directly benefitting any charity, is equally critical to help provide the necessary start-up capital and resources to stabilize a new PDO. With a strong foundation, more donors can come onboard to support its advocacies, thereby providing more aid to its beneficiaries.
