We Are Passionate About Nonprofits

They embody our best spirit and values, and infuse our communities with far-reaching benefits.  They heal, educate, shelter, protect, and nurture our humanity. And nothing drives us more at Innovative Resources Group than building on this power to affect change, improve lives, and influence public policy.

We're celebrating 22 years of strengthening a wide range of nonprofit organizations, enhancing their ability to achieve vital missions and to sustain this achievement over time. We call this “capacity building,” and never in history has the need for nonprofit capacity building and organizational effectiveness been more essential than right now. 

In 2012, individual donors gave 72 percent of the record $316.23 billion given. We believe this is because nonprofits are the face of our community, champions of the common good. Donors and volunteers want to make a difference. WE DO TOO.

Let us help you tap the potential you never realized you have.

New Effort Seeks to Drum Up Gifts to Spread Proven Programs

For all the talk among foundations about spreading nonprofits’ very best programs to many more communities—called “scaling”—precious few organizations have the money to do it.

Since the late 1990s, grant makers have envisioned a nonprofit version of venture capitalism in which high-performing charities receive enough money to blanket the country with their programs.

But such growth is expensive—few foundations can afford to pay for such expansion for even one of their grantees. And outside of a few high-profile examples—like the growth-capital fund organized by the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation—grant makers have rarely teamed up to finance transformative growth for charities.
