Request for Proposals: Nonprofit Capacity Building

The John Rex Endowment announces a new funding opportunity to build the strength and sustainability of nonprofit organizations that support vulnerable Wake County children in living healthy lives.

Within our Nonprofit Capacity Building funding, two types of grant options are available. Applicants may select either an Organizational Assessment and/or a Capacity Building project. An organizational assessment is the process of determining an organization’s current strengths and challenges in order to identify capacity building needs and recommended steps for improvement. A capacity building project is based on the results of the previously completed organizational assessment.

Priority consideration will be given to organizations that primarily serve the eastern part of Raleigh and/or the eastern part of Wake County and have operating budgets of less than $1 million.

See the Request for Proposals (RFP) for a full description of our interest including eligibility and criteria.

Please contact Gladys Hairston, Program Officer, if you have questions.  Gladys can be reached at or 919-838-1110 extension 6.
