Our partners

Capacity Building - Community is at the heart of what you do

Community is at the heart of what you do. It fuels us too.

Foundation leaders turn to Catchafire to answer:
  • Are we deliberately including new and historically underserved nonprofits?
  • How are capacity building efforts creating long-term value for the community?
  • How are we redistributing power back to communities?

Go beyond the grant check
Give your entire nonprofit network the access to Catchafire's capacity building features, and only pay for the organizations that use it.

Bridge resource gaps
Extend resources to grantees in new ways. Our model brings added flexibility and support to nonprofits, impacting their stability and growth—and the communities they serve.

Real-time reports give you meaningful data about your program, grantees, and long-term impact.
