Nonprofit Capacity Building Grant Application

LACF Discretionary Grant Application

Nonprofit organizations located and providing services in Los Alamos County are invited to submit a grant application requesting up to $5,000 to fund initiatives that increase an organization’s capacity to improve its financial health. Grants should support efforts with measurable results that strengthen financial sustainability; operations and program support are not eligible. This funding is intended to facilitate capacity building that would not be practical without grant support. Eligible activities include but are not limited to: initiatives to diversify or expand funding sources; building technological capacity to increase efficiency; investing in board development to strengthen governance and fiduciary oversight; completing a non-routine/required performance or financial review; establishing and implementing development, marketing or strategic plans.

Before submitting this application, please make sure your organization (or fiscal sponsor) is current with all state and federal reporting requirements including being in good standing with the IRS, NM Secretary of State and NM Attorney General. Please contact us with questions.
