Organizational Capacity is an organization’s ability to assess its operational capacity and infrastructure in relation to making progress on its mission.

  • What organizational capacity is, and is not.

  • The six proficiency areas we'll explore on the Merit platform, within which all of our nonprofit capacities exist.

  • Why organizational capacity matters so much (and how it can take us from good to great).
