Philanthropic equity, or growth and capacity capital, is the money so many nonprofits desperately need, but can’t access. Philanthropic equity is money that builds the infrastructure (staff, technology, systems) of the nonprofit so that it can provide more and better services. Yet many philanthropists are hesitant to support anything that is not directly related to providing services. This case study series profiles a small arts organization, Charlotte Chamber Music, and their journey to create a plan, a funding pitch and a prospect strategy to raise the money they needed to strengthen their organization and grow their impact.
