Capital & Capacity Needs

A Fund for Community Building

Strong nonprofits nurture the health of their internal operations and facilities, as well as the needs of those they serve. We aim to build the local nonprofit ecosystem by funding special projects that fall outside an organization’s usual budget.

Consultants

Project-based consulting contracts up to $50,000 that will strengthen your organization, in such areas as strategic planning, evaluation, governance, or finance. Deadline for 2021 applications: March 30 and August 31.

Small Capital Needs

Capital purchases up to $50,000 for such things as office renovations, furniture, technology, vans, signage, or capital improvements. Deadline for 2021 applications: March 30 and August 31.

Large Capital Needs

Sand Hill Foundation funds a limited number of major capital campaigns each year for current grantees. Proposals are accepted by invitation only in consultation with the foundation staff.
