Capacity Assessment Series

WINGS is launching a new Capacity Assessment Series! We will produce short, practical reports based on the results of quick surveys assessing our members’ capacity in several areas. They will keep you informed on the state of philanthropy’s infrastructure, and provide you with a tool for peer-to-peer analyses of your work. The information provided will also enable WINGS to offer better services according to your needs. 

To start the series, please answer the survey below on Resource Mobilization Capacity. It will only take a few minutes and the results will help strengthen the network and the philanthropic sector!
