Capacity Building Overview



One Rising is a catalyst for CSJ sponsored ministries to develop, grow and thrive as organizations which improve lives

and transform society for the common good.




“Capacity building is not just about the capacity of a nonprofit today -- it's about the future. Distinct capacity building projects such as identifying a communications strategy, improving volunteer recruitment, developing a leadership succession plan, identifying more efficient uses of technology, and engaging in collaborations with community partners -- all build the capacity of a charitable nonprofit to effectively deliver its mission in the future.  When capacity building is successful, it strengthens a nonprofit’s ability to fulfill its mission over time, and enhances the nonprofit’s ability to have a positive impact on lives and communities. Capacity building is an investment in the future sustainability of the nonprofit organization!” (The National Council of nonprofits)


One Rising began as a response to sponsored ministries' passion for sustainability into the future. This passion led you to identify areas where you would like to grow and to thrive.  These areas have become the domains on this website.  It is our hope that the resources and information on this site will provide the tools to help you “develop, grow and thrive as organizations which improve lives and transform society for the common good.”


It is also our hope that as ministry leaders, you will forward articles, links and other domain resources that are helpful and that should be shared with other CSJ Ministries.  Please forward these resources to JudithMinear,CSJ


We are on this journey together. We welcome suggestions and ideas for other ways that this website can be of greater assistance in helping you build capacity for your organization.  We appreciate you, your contribution to CSJ Ministries and your feedback!
