When we speak of capacity, we are generally referring to organization’s potential to marshal their human, financial and other resources to effect positive change in the communities and clients they serve. Organizational capacity is impacted by a  number of factors, including leadership, the organization’s stage of development and changes in the environment, to name a few.  The Monroe Foundation was formed in 1991 to provide technical assistance in starting community and economic development projects within low-income communities, and provide emerging groups with seed grants through the PACT Project (Partnership For Assisting Community Transformation).

Otis Monroe, CEO of the Monroe Foundation, will share lessons learned in his experiences working with African American-led organizations to build capacity, and the call for organizations to engage in the Chicago Community Trust’s On the Table discussions.
