Exceptional Counsel to Non-Profit Leadership.
WHAT MAKES A SUCCESSFUL NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION? Why do some appear to succeed while so many others struggle? Anyone who has served a non-profit organization as a senior staff member or volunteer leader appreciates that the management challenges are daunting. While there can be many underlying reasons, the fact is that almost every non-profit operates with very limited resources (human and financial) and a remarkably slim margin for error. There is really no comparison in the for-profit world where risk is acceptable, and occasionally written-off, as a corporate norm. Risk-taking seldom applies to non-profit concerns, so business usually plods on without significant changes.
The successful non-profit organization is one that understands the complex mosaic of mission, values, tradition, culture, leadership, sound management, public acceptance, and adequate human and financial resources that must form the basis for success. A shortcoming in any of these will inevitably challenge organizational health and viability.
