This digital booklet is designed to help Open Society grantees and prospective grantees in Europe strengthen their organisations.
Like any for-profit company or public institution, civil society organisations must be competent in several areas to function well under pressure, and with few resources. Their capacity to do their work depends on their performance in many areas: governance, strategy, work planning, communication, fundraising, and several others. The Capacity Catalogue helps civil society organisations recognise these areas, assess how they currently perform, and find the help they need. Its aim is to help civil society leaders identify their organisations' strengths, their weaknesses, and think critically about where and how to improve. This document is a joint publication with ODS, with the support of the Open Society Initiative for Europe.
