Adapting the C-B Program

With the changing conditions caused by COVID-19 during 2020 and 2021, the Foundation worked with its capacity-building intermediary, the Center for Nonprofit Excellence, as well as provider Duke University to transition available nonprofit capacity-building resources into virtual formats so that Cameron could continue to support the region’s nonprofit ecosystem. The Foundation also engaged ROI Impact Consulting during this time to evaluate the past and current state of capacity building and its usefulness going forward. The research included analysis of case studies and surveying past participants in various Cameron-sponsored capacity-building programs. The findings stress the need for continued deployment of strategic capacity-building investments for the region. Recently, the Center for Nonprofit Excellence has begun hosting monthly collaborative meetings for Tri-Cities area nonprofits to facilitate networking. Pictured here, participants attend a session on group strategic planning.
