At the Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg, we view capacity building in the nonprofit sector as a continuous improvement strategy aimed at maximizing the potential of Pinellas County organizations to pursue their missions and serve the community at the highest level possible. To understand how to support local nonprofits, we do our best to listen to what you tell us about your goals, challenges, needs and successes.
