Return to State Councils Homepage Capacity-Building Grant

The CIC Capacity-Building Grant Program was created to provide “seed money” grants for State Councils to enhance or expand their capacity to raise money to support their programs and member colleges. The grants are intended to provide start-up funding for new fundraising programs, particularly those which are targeted at attracting new donors and new financial support, or focus on other ways to enhance fundraising capacity for the future.


Since the program's inception, $228,000 has been distributed to fund 34 grant programs.


​Only CIC State Councils are eligible to apply for Capacity-Building Grant funding.
