ABOUT US

Capacity Builders was launched in 2010 by Lori Noonan who has nearly three decades establishing and transforming good nonprofits into great nonprofits.  Throughout her time within the nonprofit industry, she saw a trend where there was a significant lack of leaders with a solid understanding of nonprofit industry standards.

Capacity Builders is an innovative and experienced nonprofit consulting firm that specializes in helping nonprofit organizations achieve their goals and maximize their impact. With a team of expert consultants and a proven track record of success, Capacity Builders offers a wide range of services, including strategic planning, board development, fundraising and grant-writing, marketing and communications, and organizational development. 

Years of experience have shown us that it is often difficult for under-resourced organizations to build their internal infrastructure and translate impact into numbers. These challenges become a barrier to serving more people.

Oftentimes, it is the already well-funded and well-known nonprofits who receive grants because of their ability to bring in administrative and development staff or outsource services.  Capacity Builders offers interim leadership and staffing support including executive director, development director, development assistant, and program support. 

We want to fill that gap and help every nonprofit better plan, evaluate, fundraise and ultimately, tell the story of their impact.

OUR MISSION

We envision social good sector where nonprofits have access to affordable evaluation, development and planning services.

We see a future where nonprofits regularly receive acknowledgement for their service to their communities and have easy access to the information they need to help tell the story of their impact.

We look to a future where donors can clearly see positive community change. Most importantly, we are striving for a future where nonprofits can expand their impact on the communities they serve.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Years of experience have shown us that it is often difficult for under-resourced organizations to build their internal infrastructure and translate impact into numbers.

These challenges become a barrier to serving more people.

 

Oftentimes, it is the already well-funded and well-known nonprofits who receive available funding because of their ability to bring in administrative and development staff or outsource services.

 

We want to fill that gap and help every nonprofit better plan, evaluate, fundraise and ultimately, tell the story of their impact.
