Nevada Community Development Capacity-Building Initiative
Nevada bankers are launching a new initiative to enhance the state's nonprofit community development landscape. Nevada is in the midst of an economic boom that has created a need for well-managed nonprofits. While many mature organizations are stretched to capacity, newer organizations have insufficient access to development resources. The bankers have responded by creating the Community Development Capacity Building Initiative. In addition to seeding and cultivating organizations, the Initiative's training and technical assistance will aid in providing accountability for future bank-funded grants and investments. Training will be provided statewide and tailored to meet the needs of new and mature organizations, with an emphasis on financial management and strategic planning. The bankers view the initiative as a win-win for the nonprofits and the banks - with Nevada residents as the biggest winners.
