Effective Capacity Building on Nonprofit Organizations
McKinsey & Company


This report which was prepared by McKinsey & Company, strategic advisors to Venture Philanthropy Partners, was to identify examples of successful capacity building experiences at nonprofits across the USA. The findings of the McKinsey team were not altogether surprising. They confirm that capacity building is both important and difficult. This report builds on that knowledge by clarifying and broadening the definition of capacity building. The findings of the report represent a collective body of information that will be useful to the social, public and private sectors.
