Whether in the idea stage, the terminal stage, or somewhere in the middle, each nonprofit organization exists to serve their respective communities. Lifecycles stages alone, however, do not fully explain the dynamics that impact and influence their existence. Capacity building is an emerging initiative gaining momentum and recognition among nonprofit community leaders for increasing nonprofit success. Nonprofit organizations can increase capacity building strategies to deliver meaningful and community-based programs and services to ensure their survival. This case study explores the organizational maturity and governing board strategies for the Texas Association of Partners in Education (TAPE) though the lens of capacity building strategies.
