Greater Baton Rouge nonprofits operate effectively and demonstrate impact



In partnership with the Louisiana Alliance for Nonprofits (formerly LANO), Huey and Angelina Wilson Foundation is pleased to present the Nonprofit Capacity Building Institute: Principles & Best Practices for Nonprofits. The Institute is an intensive, 12-month program focused on strengthening organizational capacity, measurable outcomes, community impact, and operational effectiveness.


The Institute will run March 2023 thru February 2024. In a cohort-based approach to capacity building, you will participate in small group convenings around specific topics paired with shared learning opportunities to discuss mutual issues, learning from the challenges and solutions of peers, and problem solving together. Each session will be facilitated by a content expert who will guide the cohort, frame each session, and offer tools and resources. In addition, participants will have access to support by Resilia, a tech platform and consultancy that provides extensive support, resources, and one-on-one coaching.


The Institute begins with an organizational assessment followed by a virtual introductory session, 12 weekly 3-hour in-person class sessions March thru May) and two planning sessions focused on future planning and goal setting. Selected organizations must commit one lead participant to attend all sessions, plus one other appropriate person based on the session topic. The Institute will be intense, and attendance is critical to your success. We value your time and will ensure that each session is worthy of your commitment.
