Missoula Project for Nonprofit Excellence Capacity Building Grant
We offer capacity-building grants that help nonprofits engage leadership and staff to create a clear vision for the internal organizational work they need to accomplish to further their mission. The grant provides an organizational assessment and funding for one major capacity-building project identified through the assessment.
We are currently working to improve the experience for grantees and will be back in the Spring of 2021.
“At first I thought, can’t we just get a grant to buy something? That’s what we really want to do! But when we got into the MPNE process, it was clear this was exactly what we needed to do: take stock with our board and staff and hone the vision for our organization.”
“That assessment piece, that first step, is such an amazing piece of data that you just really can’t get anywhere else. Nobody is giving grants like this. You would never be able to afford to hire a consultant to come in and look at your organization in this way. We would never be able to devote resources to that.”
“MPNE makes your organization stronger. And it helps you grow in a way that will impact your sustainability in the future… That investment of time and effort in the infrastructure building activities that you get from this process you really can’t get anywhere else.”

Without (MPNE), we wouldn’t have been able to write a strategic plan that really puts our tool library at the heart of our programs…”
