FRAMEmethods has developed a grant program aimed at strengthening the organizational capacity and effectiveness of small- and mid-size nonprofit organizations. FRAMEmethods’s team believes that mission-driven organizations are more effective when they are grounded in thoughtful data management practices. 


Our inspiration for this program is to both provide pro bono expertise to nonprofit organizations without significant capacity for this work and to train a pipeline of our staff. 

Types of support provided by FRAMEmethods through this program include:

  • 12 months of pro bono, ad hoc, tailored tech advice for up to five hours per month; 
  • Complimentary access to a customer portal (Knowledge Base, Support, Training, Systems Documentation)
  • Pro bono assistance with 1 “Special Project” during the 12 month coverage period
    •  Examples: Data system conversion, Technical debt remediation, data cleaning, integrations, optimizations 

It is our hope that participation in this capacity building grant program will help nonprofit organizations develop sound data management and operational practices that strengthen the outcomes of their work. 



To be eligible to participate in this program, applicant organizations must:


  • Have an annual operating budget of $2M USD or less;
  • Employ no more than one staff member tasked with development/fundraising; and
  • Utilize at least one of the following systems: Salesforce, NetSuite, RE/NXT, Drupal, WordPress.
