Nonprofit Effectiveness Pilot

About Nonprofit Effectiveness

LVCF Nonprofit Effectiveness PilotFoundations rely on strong, healthy organizations to achieve progress in solving the region’s most pressing issues. Yet, many nonprofits routinely face organizational challenges, from major staff transitions to capacity gaps.

Lehigh Valley Community Foundation is committed to funding nonprofits during a pilot year to provide targeted support to help strengthen nonprofit effectiveness, enabling them to do their work better and enhance their impact.

Nonprofit effectiveness includes both of the following: 1) Organizational Health: the ability to function effectively, cope adequately, change appropriately, and grow from within; and 2) Organizational Resilience: the ability of an organization to anticipate, prepare for, and respond and adapt to incremental and/or sudden changes in the environment in order to survive and prosper.

Nonprofit effectiveness areas include strong governance, sound management, and efficient operations.

Applications for the 2019-2020 cycle are by invitation only

Organizations for the 2019-2020 have already been invited to apply. Please check back for application information in the spring of 2020.
