Performance Improvement 2011-2012. In What Ways Did the Compassion Capital Fund Demonstration Program Improve Its Capacity?

01/01/2012

Researchers tested the effectiveness of the Compassion Capital Fund (CCF). CCF builds organizational capacity among non-profit organizations (NPOs) to strengthen their long-term sustainability and ability to provide effective social services. Five critical areas of organizational capacity were examined, organizational development, program development, revenue development, leadership development, and community engagement.  The program group members showed higher levels of capacity gain than members of the control group.

Organizations served by the Compassion Capital Fund intermediaries experienced substantial changes in multiple areas of organizational capacity. Statistically significant changes were found for at least one measure in each of the substantive organizational development areas targeted.
