What is capacity building?



At Quantum Foundation, our work goes far beyond funding health projects. We’re also interested in the “organizational health” of the nonprofits which work in the fields we fund. Strong nonprofits mean better services and more options for the ultimate beneficiaries of our work – the people of Palm Beach County.

To achieve this, we’ve made capacity building an integral part of our strategy.

What exactly is capacity building?

To us, it means building up the internal capacity—which includes things like skills, knowledge and human and financial resources--of a nonprofit so they can do their work as effectively as possible, making a real impact on people’s health every day.
