The Capacity Building Grant Program is an annual program of the Chesapeake Bay Trust (the Trust) and the Chesapeake Bay Funders Network (CBFN) that seeks to support the internal capacity of natural resource related nonprofit organizations working in the Chesapeake, Coastal Bays, and Youghiogheny watersheds. “Organizational capacity” is defined as activities that strengthen an organization and help it better fulfill its mission. Organizations that are strong and healthy are better able to accomplish their missions, which in turn allows the entire community to realize its collective goal of healthy natural resources given the degree of partnership that exist across organizations. Through this opportunity, grants will be provided to eligible nonprofit organizations to strengthen their internal capacity or to strengthen the capacity of other non-profit organizations.
