Important Introduction to our Stories

You will read exceptional stories. For example, in one instance a nonprofit grew from $57 to $108 million in revenue within two years. In another instance, a $19,000 grant led to raising over $300,000 in funding. While these are extraordinary examples where donors achieved exceptional results with their giving dollars, there are simply no guarantees you will achieve similar results – every situation is different.

We want to help you increase your success by better understanding the capacity-building landscape, including approaches for mitigating risks and maximizing impact. We hope you will take full advantage of the free resources available to you on this site.
