Capacity Building and Technical Assistance

Board Building Initiatives

To address a need for younger, next-generation board members among its grantees and other nonprofits that serve youth, the foundation began seeking models for sustainable, high-impact fellowship programs with the potential to increase in scale over time. VCG-Governance Matters, the Taproot Foundation, and the Tipping Point Foundation were selected to undertake these projects, serving New York City and San Francisco Bay Area youth-focused nonprofits. VCG, Taproot, and Tipping Point implemented programs to identify, train, and place qualified and engaged younger professionals on nonprofit boards.
