Leadership Development



Technical Assistance

Nonprofit Capacity Enhancement: This area is dedicated to empowering non-profit organizations to more effectively achieve their missions. By providing comprehensive training and resources, we enhance operational efficiency, financial stability, and strategic foresight, ensuring organizations can serve their communities sustainably and effectively.

Partnerships and Collaboration: Through our Technical Assistance, we form alliances with nonprofits, educational institutions, and government agencies, helping them define and chart a path to deepening the impact of their purpose-driven programs, products, and services.

Funding Partnerships: TruNorth Foundation works with foundations to underwrite technical assistance services that we deliver to nonprofits and public-serving agencies that may not have the budgets and capacity that they need. Specifically, we partner with funders to create Technical Assistance Grant programs for grantees, and communities of practice for enhancing strategy, community engagement practices, and other areas of critical skillbuilding for successfully achieving equitable outcomes. 


TruNorth Foundation offers events, programs and retreats designed to strengthen core segments of our community.

Focused on community leaders, youth leaders, parents, activists, and front-line staff in the non-profit sector, we strengthen ties within these groups by offering safe spaces and expertly-curated opportunities for professional development and personal well-being,
