Philanthropy University via NovoEd

This course may be unavailable.


Backing an organization's programmatic work through thoughtful assessment of its capacity is a critical step towards making nonprofits stronger and more effective.

In this course, students will analyze their organization's current capacity and prioritize ways to further impact. Through a mix of lectures and interviews with real nonprofit leaders, students will design their own capacity building plans--using actual data from survey results--to increase the effectiveness of their organizations. The Organizational Capacity Assessment Tool (OCAT), developed by McKinsey & Company and Venture Philanthropy Partners, will be used.
