Anyone who’s spoken with either of our principals lately has probably gotten an earful on the subject of nonprofit sustainability. What is it? How can we measure it? What mistakes threaten it? What practices ensure it? And have expectations around it become a stick to beat nonprofits with?
We have answers.
In a series of articles starting here, we’ll give you a good working definition of what nonprofit sustainability is (and what is isn’t), back up our findings with research and expert references, and explain each of the areas we think are important. We’ll also debut a new tool, the Leadership Evaluation for Nonprofit Sustainability (more on that later).
