Growing or Stalling?

Angst over finances continues to be the number one concern of nonprofit executives.  Last year. This year.  And (probably) the years to come.

Does it have to be thus? No.

There’s at least a billion more dollars available for philanthropy that’s not being engaged.

So, what’s the hold up?

Defending the (not so pleasant but tolerable and predicable) status quo.

What?  You mean to tell me that nonprofit execs resist making the changes necessary to alleviate the financial anxiety?

Yes, I do.

Why would they do this?

It’s simple.  People often cling to what they are doing because they fear what adopting anything different might bring.  That fear turns into stalling.

And yet. . .

The research is done. When an organization makes its donors it’s partners, magic happens.  How about 400% increases in highly flexible and renewable philanthropic revenue?

A true no brainer.

And the good news—achieving these sorts of outcomes isn’t a function of organizational size.  It’s about attitude—and organizational alignment.

This is what we’ve dedicated ourselves to here at The Eight Principles.  Showing you how it’s done.

You have a choice.  To grow or to stall.
