At least a dozen organizations across Indiana will have the opportunity to serve more children, youth or families or improve their effectiveness through a grant program offered by the Indiana Youth Institute.

The Capacity Building Coaching grant will give nonprofits serving children, youth or families an opportunity to overcome challenges by matching consultants with agency staff and board members to develop strategies and implement best practices.

IYI will award 12 grants, but collaborative applications between two agencies are encouraged. Applications must be submitted via email to IYI by Monday.

Nonprofit community and faith-based organizations serving children, youth or families from any Indiana county are eligible. Geographic diversity will be taken into account when the grants are awarded. The grants will be awarded in September and the grant cycle will run through June.

Winning organizations will receive:

  • Up to 150 hours of professional consulting for strategic planning, board development, evaluation planning, fund development, marketing, executive mentoring, technology or other technical assistance to increase the effectiveness of the organization.
  • Registration for one to “Principles and Techniques of Fundraising,” a five-day overview course taught by The Fund Raising School at Indiana University in Indianapolis, with approved travel expenses.
  • Registration for two to IYI’s Because Kids Count Conference in Indianapolis, Dec. 3-4, with approved travel expenses.
