Nonprofit Impact Initiative

Investing in the long-term health of nonprofits

The Nonprofit Impact Initiative is a funding and program collaborative concentrated on supporting nonprofit development for long-term success. By providing a space for nonprofit leaders to think beyond everyday operations, this initiative helps organizations navigate tough challenges and improve organizational effectiveness, so they are strategically positioned to best serve our community now and in the future.

The Impact Initiative program includes: 

Capacity-building grants
Two grant cycles exist to support nonprofit organizations in Brown, Door, Kewaunee and Oconto counties. Within each cycle, there are grant dollars specifically allocated to support organizations serving populations 60 and over, as well as grant dollars available for organizations serving all sectors of the community. 

Funding for capacity-building grants is limited. Please contact our community engagement team to confirm eligibility and to discuss your proposed project. 

Group Learning
An impact summit of nonprofit leaders designed by the leaders themselves will convene to share experiences, best practices and solutions to drive meaningful change inside their organizations. 

Educational Tools
The Community Foundation will lead an effort to develop an online platform for organizations in the region to access, share resources and communicate best practices. 

Technical Assistance
The initiative seeks to provide actionable tools for nonprofits which may include organizational assessments and informational surveys such as the popular region-specific salary and benefits survey. 

The Nonprofit Impact Initiative is a collaboration between the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation, Bader Philanthropies and Retirement Research Group. We work in partnership with the Door County Community Foundation and Brown County United Way.

The Nonprofit Impact Initiative is not intended to be a membership program. From time to time small fees may be required to cover specific costs related to a resource. Every effort is being taken to provide open access to programs without drawing funds from critical grantmaking programs.
