Dare Mighty Things offers Increased Capacity to NonProfit Organizations

September 2012

Through coordination with the Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Dare Mighty Things is continuing to make the highly valued website, StrengtheningNonprofits.org, available at no cost to the Federal government.

This site provides a collection of e-learning lessons and guidebooks originally developed by the National Resource Center to support Compassion Capital Fund (CCF) grantees between 2002 and 2010. The website remains relevant and publicly available as a resource for non-profit capacity builders nationwide, on a range of topics, including:

  • Identifying and Promoting Effective Practices
  • Leading a Non-Profit Organization : Tips and Tools for Executive Directors and Team Leaders
  • Managing Crisis: Risk Management and Crisis Response Planning
  • Managing Public Grants
  • Measuring Outcomes

The intended users continue to be any audience interested in expanding the capacity of nonprofit services in their community – from front-line service providers to executives in large intermediary organizations. Intermediary organizations, some of the original recipients of these materials, are agencies that were granted CCF funds to build the capacity of the faith-based and community-based organizations (FBCOs) they served.

The Capacity Builder’s Library was developed by the National Resource Center and operated by Dare Mighty Things, for the Compassion Capital Fund (CCF) and the Strengthening Communities Fund (SCF), in the performance of Contract Number HHSP23320082912YC for the Department of Health and Human Services.
