Capacity Building

Strengthening Our Community’s Capacity

We increase our community’s capacity to support children, families, and organizations throughout Alamance County by joining forces with community groups. Together, we are building leaders, achieving more than the sum of our individual efforts and boosting our collective impact. 

To enhance the organizational health of our partnerships, we offer the following capacity-building resources to grantees and nonprofit partners to strengthen their growth. 

Leadership Institute

This nine-month program provides nonprofit and government leaders with foundational leadership skills that are essential to enhancing their development and advancing the mission of their organizations or agencies. This program also serves as an opportunity to be introduced to our growing partnership and resource network. 

Board Development

We offer tailored training opportunities for board development to current and past participants of the Leadership Institute.

  • This program is for existing boards of nonprofit organizations who together are committed to enhancing their skills and capabilities to provide effective leadership and governance to their organization and its mission.
  • Your executive director must be a current or former participant of The Leadership Institute.
  • Completed Application due March 11, 2024 by 5pm.
  • Letter of commitment from Executive Director.
  • Letter of commitment from Board Chair.
  • Each board member will agree to complete an anonymous board assessment.
  • Each board member will agree to participate in a four-hour retreat.
  • Please note that it is extremely important that the Executive Director and board members dedicate adequate time to this important process.

Consultant Support & Technical Assistance

Impact Alamance works to build the capacity of local nonprofits to further support and sustain the services they offer to our community. We support their ability to operate and to strengthen and enhance core infrastructure so they can deliver quality programming more effectively and efficiently. In addition, we match nonprofits with a consultant who can provide organizational assessments, strategic planning, marketing planning, fundraising planning and more.  Impact Alamance will directly pay for the consultant services once an application for capacity building technical assistance is approved. 

  • Executive director must be a current or former participant of The Leadership Institute;
  • The board members of the nonprofit must have received board development training within the past 3 years;
  • Must have had an executive director in place for at least one full year;
