About this grant

This grant will provide continued support to the United Way of Genesee County for the Building Excellence, Sustainability and Trust project, which is an initiative designed to build the capacity of Genesee County nonprofit organizations to meet the ever increasing needs of their clients and the community. A second cohort of nine Genesee County nonprofit agencies has completed an organizational assessment and with this funding will receive capacity building and technical assistance by a vetted pool of experienced consultants. Evaluations to assess the internal and external effectiveness of participating agencies as well as the program’s impact on the community will continue. The other funders of this local collaboration include the Community Foundation of Greater Flint and the Ruth Mott Foundation.
