Performance Improvement 2009. Do Faith-Based and Community Organizations Report Positive Changes in Organizational Capacity?


Evaluators assessed the organizational capacity building outcomes associated with receipt of a Targeted Capacity Building grant under the Compassion Capital Fund (CCF). These grant funds are awarded to faith-based and community organizations for organizational capacity building to increase their effectiveness, enhance their ability to provide social services, expand their organizations, diversify their funding sources, and create collaborations to better serve those in need.

Ninety-two percent of the grantees reported that the grant funds contributed to improvements in organizational capacity and 81 percent reported that CCF assistance helped improve participant outcomes. Almost three-quarters (72%) indicated the Targeted Capacity Building grant made a positive difference in their revenue development strategy.
