Georgia: Innovative Approach to Capacity Building
The commitment of the Georgia Council for the Arts (GCA) to helping Georgia’s nonprofit arts groups realize their goals and best serve their audiences has led to an interesting partnership and funding opportunity. Through GCA’s Momentum for the Arts, 20 Georgia arts organizations will receive free capacity-building assistance over the course of two years. The opportunity is an adaptation of the Momentum program developed by the Georgia Center for Nonprofits (GCN), which is collaborating with GCA to bring it to the arts community. The main goals of the collaborative effort are to enhance strategic capacity, develop effective leadership, foster collaboration and promote sustainability. For the first 18 months of the program, nonprofit leaders will receive management training, organizational assessments, 30 hours of one-on-one consulting, customized strategic and development planning, and minigrants for software and participation expenses. In addition, monthly workshops will cover a variety of issues ranging from board engagement to program design and evaluation. In the last six months, participating groups will work to implement what they learned with the help of additional consulting services. For more information, contact GCA Grants Program Manager Tina Lilly.
