Capacity Building grants are grants offered through the Battle Creek Funders Group which consists of the Battle Creek Community Foundation, United Way of the Battle Creek and Kalamazoo Region, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the Miller Foundation, the Binda Foundation, and the Kellogg Company as contributors. This grant opportunity is for nonprofit organizations located in the greater Battle Creek area; which is defined as the City of Battle Creek, City of Springfield, and the Townships of Bedford, Emmett and Pennfield. Grant requests should reflect up to $500 maximum for a Capacity Building Scholarship and up to $7,500 maximum for a Capacity Building Grant.
Capacity Building grant awards are to be utilized in the process of strengthening an organization and its infrastructure in order to improve its performance and impact. In an organization, infrastructure commonly refers to the systems that keep it running, such as financial management and reporting, record keeping, technology, marketing, fundraising, etc.
Program related expenses, as well as costs associated with the daily operations of an organization (materials, equipment, staff, etc.), are not eligible for this opportunity. Please read the Capacity Building Guidelines thoroughly.
