Capacity Building Fund

Our Capacity Building Fund is a specific type of grant meant to strengthen an organization’s systems and thereby increase its effectiveness. Unlike our project-based grants, the capacity-building funding responds to internal, organizational needs that impact a nonprofit’s stability, efficiency, and future success. 

In addition to our capacity building fund, SCCF has a strategic partnership with the University of the South to sponsor AmeriCorps volunteers who work for local non-profits. LEARN MORE>
