Investing in Not-for-Profit Capacity in Regional NSW

Investing in Not-for-Profit Capacity in Regional NSW (INFPC) was a 12 month place-based program in three bushfire affected communities, being Bega, Taree and Wingham, and Glen Innes.

The program supported the resourcing and capacity of grassroots not-for-profit organisations in these communities, helping them to respond and thrive in the face of current challenges.

The Paul Ramsay Foundation and FRRR partnered to offer a program of activities including local workshops, grant funding, skill development and networking to help create local solutions to local issues.

The key program activities included:

  • Online Workshops – held in each of the three communities to establish awareness of the program, promote the opportunity for one-off grants, and assess theme and focus of future local community workshops (e.g. skills and training, governance support, developing fundraising strategies or strategic plans).
  • Capacity Building Grants – one-off grant support for not-for-profit organisations to increase resourcing and delivery capacity and strengthen their operations for the longer term.  
  • Capacity Building Workshops – two per community, with each community to determine the themes / focus most valuable to them.
  • Learning & Sharing – three Community NFP Insight Reports – a resource informed by the community, for the community, incorporating future priorities and directions.
