CRUSA’s Catalyst Grants Program finances actions that increase the internal capacity of nonprofit organizations by building their medium- and long-term management capacity.

Our grants of up to $10,000 seek to catalyze organizational growth, enabling organizations to make one-time investments that increase their internal capacity in areas such as fundraising, management, communications, strategic planning.

We do not finance direct attention to beneficiaries, but rather actions that increase the internal capacity of the organizations themselves. We do not finance recurring costs.
