2021 Competitive Capacity‐Building Grants

Taking Charities to the Next Level with Competitive Capacity‐Building Grant Cycles In order to effect change, it is important to think big! But effective growth requires strategic, mindful planning. Taking that concept into consideration, the Washington County Community Foundation has been placing increased emphasis on supporting capacity‐ building requests.

Many grants have been issued to enable local charities to increase their capacity to better address their missions through the purchase of technology, improved financial reporting, marketing campaigns, strategic plans, or increased staffing, just to name a few.

Due to a recent influx of discretionary grant‐ making dollars from the late Alvin and Carol What is “Capacity Building?” Berthold, the Foundation restructured its Our definition of “capacity building” is any annual competitive grants cycles specifically to activity that increases a nonprofit’s operational, support capacity‐building endeavors. programmatic, financial, or organizational In 2021, a total of $410,000 in capacity‐building maturity. grants was issued through the competitive Each year, the WCCF awards an array of grants cycles, with awards ranging from $5,000 to from discretionary resources, through an open $50,000.

Casting a Lifeline: Featured Grant: Domestic Violence Services of SW PA

$150,000 Line of Credit Grant Deemed a “Godsend” Combating Cash Flow Woes

Domestic Violence Services of Southwestern PA works to empower survivors of domestic violence and reassure them that they deserve to be safe and free from violence.

The strain of COVID‐19’s financial impact is still being dealt with by many nonprofits. When the priority of the budget is to maintain all‐important services for clients, other elements of the operation may take a painful hit. These challenges can become even more acute when there is a delay in reimbursement funds from the government. Lisa Hannum, Executive Director of Domestic Violence Services of Southwestern PA (DVSSP), found her organization in this stressful situation: “It was an ongoing struggle for us to find the cash to pay our staff and other bills as we would wait to receive government reimbursements for services provided several months prior.” 8

At the time, DVSSP had a $50,000 line of credit; but, unfortunately, it was insufficient to meet cash flow needs. Tremendous growth in programming coupled with the delay in payment for services rendered was forcing DVSSP to pull cash from its Administrative Reserve. This investment was held in a brokerage account that contained only three months of the organization’s operating budget. While the Administrative Reserve was intended to be used when the charity was in dire need of cash (as was the case), it was not a sustainable long‐term solution for an unexpected increase in expenses or an unexpected loss of income. Withdrawing cash from the Reserve was only addressing their financial problems for the moment, and at the same time, they were limiting the Reserve’s earning potential, which could have severe consequences in the future. Lisa knew that DVSSP needed to fix this situation before it was too late. The organization couldn’t afford to continue to gamble its limited reserves on equally limited time — not when the welfare of DVSSP’s vulnerable clients so critically depended on them. Discussions among DVSSP’s leadership

were held, plans were made, and then those plans were quickly put into action.

The grant was issued in April 2021, and it did not take long for DVSSP to see the benefits. In fact, in Lisa’s words, the grant has been “a godsend.”

She remarked, “We have drawn upon the line of credit several times, and then paid off the balance as A DVSSP employee carefully the reimbursement grants have reviews client information. been received. Rather than The Community CARE Fund Offers stressing on how to make an Innovative Solution payroll, we can now focus our energies on After carefully considering the different facets of providing services to our clients and communities.

DVSSP’s financial institution was willing to increase its line of credit from $50,000 to $100,000 using its building and other assets as collateral. But, based on Lisa’s current cash flow needs, the increase still wouldn’t be enough to solve the problem. It was then that she turned to the WCCF for help.
