• Description

In partnership with Grantmakers for Effective Organizations, BTW informing change and Leadership that Works, CompassPoint Nonprofit Services launched the Coaching and Philanthropy Project (CAP) to assess and advance coaching as a strategy for building effective nonprofit organizations.

The CAP Project is a deep dive into learning about the nonprofit sector's support for and use of coaching, something no one has examined to this extent before. The result is a large body of information and ideas that the CAP Project seeks to consolidate and share with peers in the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors and in the field of coaching.

This guide draws on data that we have collected for more than three years as part of the second phase of the CAP Project. During this period, we have gathered information and suggestions from hundreds of individuals, including nonprofit leaders who have received coaching, coaches who have provided coaching to nonprofit leaders, intermediaries and others who arrange for nonprofit coaching, and grantmakers who support coaching in a variety of ways for their nonprofit grantees
