Overview

Spark breakthrough capacity An organizational assessment has the potential to launch a nonprofit down new paths that inspire more productivity and better mission delivery. In this new book, funders, grantees, and consultants will understand how organizational assessment can be used to: 1) Build the capacity of nonprofits; 2) Enhance grantmaking; 3) Impact organizational systems; 4) Strengthen the nonprofit sector; and 5) Measure foundation effectiveness. Part 1 presents four grantee assessment tools: 1) The McKinsey Capacity Assessment Grid; 2) The LISC Capacity-Building Model—CapMap® 3) The Unity Foundation’s C.Q.®; and 4) The Babcock Foundation’s Assessment for Grassroots Organizations. You’ll learn how each tool was developed, what its features are, how it’s used, and lessons learned from some of the nonprofit sector’s leading practitioners: Blueprint R&D, Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), Unity Foundation, Center for Effective Philanthropy, and Fieldstone Alliance, among others. Part 2 of the guide describes two tools for assessing foundation performance: The Grantee Perception Report® and Smart Growth: A life stage model for social change philanthropy.
