The Western New York Nonprofit Support Group needs your help! This new working group, comprised of five foundations and two independent consultants, is working to help non-profits in Western New York and Monroe County come together to collaborate, learn, and innovate to strengthen their ability to deliver on their missions. They have partnered with the Center for Governmental Research (CGR) to learn about the capacity building needs and resources in our communities. Capacity building in this case refers to support and technical assistance to help non-profits increase specific capacities to deliver stronger programs, take risks, build connections, and innovate.

Your voice in this study is really important.  Survey responses will be used to inform the group about what organizations like yours want, need, and already have access to in regards to capacity building resources and services, so as to build on existing efforts and fill gaps not currently being addressed to help you and your organizations better achieve your missions. Your feedback will inform the kinds of services and initiatives that might be supported in the future.

This survey is entirely voluntary and neither your name nor the name of your organization will be tied to survey results. The survey should take about 20 minutes to complete. Once you’ve completed the survey, you can enter to win a drawing for one of four $50 VISA gift cards.  The survey will close on February 7th 2019.

If you have any questions about the survey, please email
