Overview

The Enhanced Capacity Advancement Program (ECAP) helps to advance and strengthen the non-profit/voluntary sector, by providing multi-year operational funding for up to 3 years to Alberta-based non-profit organizations that have a primary mandate and proven ability to:


build the capacity of other non-profit organizations in Alberta

strengthen and advance the capacity of Alberta’s non-profit/voluntary sector as a whole*


The ECAP defines capacity building as the process of developing the knowledge, skill and ability to make and implement decisions in a manner that achieves effective and efficient results at the individual, organizational and sector level.


Funding through the ECAP focuses on strengthening the non-profit/voluntary sector in 5 areas of focus:


  • Strategic Leadership Capacity

  • Adaptive Capacity

  • Management Capacity

  • Operational/Technical Capacity

  • Systems Capacity

Funding

Designed to meet the unique needs of diverse capacity building non-profit organizations, the ECAP provides 2 levels of funding:


  • Core funding of up to $75,000 annually

  • Enhanced Capacity Building funding of up to $150,000 annually

Core funding

Supports internal capacity building and invests in the operations and administration of an organization to further its mission. Funding is determined based on meeting eligibility requirements and the internal capacity building outcomes identified within 4 of the capacity building areas of focus outlined above (excluding Systems Capacity).


Organizations that have been successfully assessed for Core funding will then be assessed for Enhanced Capacity Building funding.


Enhanced Capacity Building funding

Supports external capacity building and invests in a broad range of activities designed to build the capacity of other non-profit organizations and the sector as a whole. Funding is determined based on the breadth and impact of the organization’s external capacity building outcomes as identified from all 5 capacity building areas of focus outlined above.
