At Civitates, we do not only provide funding to our grantee partners. We also provide them with opportunities to learn, reflect, and connect. We call this our Funding Plus approach.
After all, the only way we can achieve our mission and vision is if we have strong grantee partners. We therefore actively try to improve their skills and expertise and facilitate networking so that they have what it takes to tackle the many challenges they are up against.
We know there isn’t one right way to go about capacity building, so we try to understand what our partners would find most helpful and let them be in the driver’s seat.
There are different elements to our Funding Plus approach, but the two most important ones are our grantee get-togethers and what we call Learning Initiatives. Please check out the sections below to learn more about these.
