What We Do

Capacity Building


Informal coaching is provided to our grantees by the Foundation staff, board and community partners. We seek to be a resource and connector enabling organizations to grow and benefit from our expertise and longevity in the nonprofit sector.

The Conn Memorial Foundation has a deep commitment to providing the nonprofit sector with opportunities to build organizational capacity. To that end, Conn provides funding and leadership to the Nonprofit Leadership Center of Tampa Bay (NLCTB) and encourages all nonprofits in the Tampa Bay area to take advantage of this important resource.
