Taproot Foundation Accepting Applications for Capacity-Building Service Grants

Deadline: December 1, 2007

The Taproot Foundation ( ) engages highly skilled business professionals to deliver capacity-building services to nonprofit organizations in New York City, Boston, the San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago, and Seattle.

Unlike traditional foundations that provide cash grants, the Taproot Foundation makes "service grants" to provide nonprofits with critical marketing, technology, and human resources devel- opment services.

A grant from the Taproot Foundation can provide an organization with the tools and resources necessary to achieve specific goals and objectives in their strategic plan, marketing/ communications plan, technology plan, and staffing structure.

Applicants must have a mission that fits within one of the following four categories; education (pre-K and K-12); environment; health; and social services.

To be eligible to apply, an organization must have 501(c)(3) public charity status or operate under the fiscal sponsorship of a 501(c)(3), and must have its headquarters within the foundation's service area and provide direct benefits primarily or entirely to residents of the foundation's service areas.
