For Current Grantees

The Springboard Management Suite Grant Process

One of the benefits of being a Springboard grantee is access to additional funds to bolster the infrastructure of your growing organization by supporting capacity building activities.  Capacity building is not limited to but includes:

  • Leadership Development - building skills among the board, board chair and executive director
  • Strategic Planning - thinking strategically about the next phase of the organization; creating a strategic plan
  • Technical Assistance - hiring consultants to assist with fundraising and technology; sending critical staff and board members to seminars in these areas

Current grantees may request additional grant funds to attend classes, receive coaching and/or enlist the help of the Management Suite Partners. 

The Process:

  1. Current grantees should provide an invoice or scope document of the activity for which they are requesting support. Send to Sejal Shah-Myers at email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it
  2. Two times a year; February and August (1st Wednesday of each month).
  3. Springboard will approve up to 70% of the cost of the funding request up to $3,500.
  4. An email will be sent to the grantee acknowledging whether a grant request was approved or declined.
  5. Approved grants will be paid to either the grantee or provider depending on nonprofit status.

Please note:

  • Management  Suite grants are only available to current Springboard grantees.
  • Current grantees have $3,500 available for every year.
  • Grantees must spend the funds for Management  Suite grants in 1 year (October 1 to September 30).
  • The balance of funds does not carry over; every year starts anew with $3,500.
  • Please refer to the Grantee Onboard Guide for more details.

Because grantee time and resources are valuable, before engaging in a consulting relationship to boost the capacity of your organization, consider reading through the Guide to Hiring Consultants by ACN, the Association of Consultants for Nonprofits.
