Equipping nonprofits and nonprofit leaders with the tools, knowledge, and support to accelerate their impact. The Grunin Capacity Brand Icon represents this network of non-profit leaders as they navigate sea change with six key C’s: Curiosity, Conversation, Collaboration, Community, Compassion, Capacity.

Why do we focus on Capacity Building?

We believe when our local nonprofits thrive, our community will thrive. We also understand that not all nonprofits have the same access to social and human capital.

This is why we created Grunin Capacity - to help nonprofits and nonprofit leaders accelerate their impact. Through this initiative, the Grunin Foundation offers an array of resources, events and opportunities geared at supporting changemakers, fostering collaboration and amplifying diverse leadership for greater impact.

2024-2026 Strategic Plan

In late 2022, we realized not only that our funding and EDIB strategies were operating separately, but also that we needed to be more connected to community to truly fund equitably. We believe it is essential to our mission to find meaningful ways to integrate Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging in everything we do. We have pledged to co-learn and work with our partners, colleagues, and communities to help break down barriers, uplift marginalized voices, celebrate diversity, and champion a more just and equitable society. To achieve this, we took a step back and engaged experienced consultants from the Novalia Collective to guide us through our strategic planning process.
