Nonprofit Executive Directors of Color Capacity Support Pilot

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold, heightening health and economic disparities and exacerbating other historical and entrenched inequities, we believe your work and the voice and leadership of the communities you engage, and belong to, are essential to a more just recovery. We recognize that this community of nonprofits is on the frontlines of the pandemic and play a critical role in the local ecosystem, especially in centering the most impacted.  

We have heard your call for a deeper investment in capacity building.

TSNE is pleased to announce our new Nonprofit Executive Directors of Color Capacity Support Pilot. This robust, cohort-based executive director support pilot, is aimed at:

  • Supporting organizational leadership
  • Offering participatory trainings on topics defined by participants (e.g., sustainability strategies, change management, board and staff relationships)
  • Enlisting partners in co-creating the capacity building agenda to best meet their needs 

This program is made possible through the support of the Barr Foundation, The Boston Foundation, The Hyams Foundation, and The Klarman Family Foundation.


This completely remote cohort program will provide leaders with adaptive, flexible, and integrated support through a range of strategically targeted modalities, including peer support and networking, participatory training, facilitated discussion, one-on-one coaching, project-oriented technical assistance, and access to critical tools and resources. The first cohort has already begun. Contact us to learn more about the Nonprofit Executive Directors of Color Capacity Support program, or to inquire about future cohorts.

Strengthening our Sector by Sharing our Learnings

We are committed to strengthening the sector by openly sharing learnings and evaluation findings with the field. We will use the cohort’s key learnings to inform our work, and share our findings with other funders and capacity-builders.
