Giving Every Nonprofit the Capacity to Lead.

Research shows that the health of a nonprofit can be assessed using 6 core capacities: leading, learning, overseeing, generating, planning and managing. The Impact Capacity Assessment Tool (iCAT) is the next generation organization assessment tool, designed to help nonprofits better understand their capacity and put that understanding into action to increase their impact. Hear how one organization benefited from the iCAT and is currently implementing the recommendations by reading our case study.


Receive valuable, honest feedback from stakeholders; leverage iCAT recommendations in seeking funds for capacity building; receive prioritized recommendations that show what will have the greatest impact.


Inform your capacity building investments to support grantees; research-based tool you can recommend with confidence; purchase in bulk for multiple grantees.

Learn how the iCAT helps nonprofits reach their full potential.
