"In the Spring of 2015, our grant making efforts are focused on increasing the impact of innovative non-profits through capacity building grants. The Foundation Beyond Belief (FBB) seeks to support and increase the capacity of organizations that are developing or broadening potentially transformative evidence-based and evidence-informed social innovations that solve critical community problems. The Compassionate Impact Grant is designed to provide a capacity building grant to a non-profit that provides an innovative, evidence-driven solution to a community or societal problem.
In Spring 2015, FBB will make a capacity building grant in the amount of $50,000 to $65,000 to one innovative organization with the goal to increase that organization’s capacity to support those in need and create solutions. This is an open, competitive process with applicants assessed on their ability to provide evidence-driven, innovative solutions that reach different or larger numbers of constituents. The purpose of the Foundation Beyond Belief Compassionate Impact Grant program is to increase the capacity of innovative, community-based organizations, so they have a greater impact on critical problems in low-income communities."
