Not for Profit

As a not for profit organization, you face many challenges:

  • How can you most effectively communicate your mission and values?
  • How do you find and engage those stakeholders who are vital to fulfilling your mission?
  • What are the most effective ways to create and manage campaigns to expand your donor base?
  • How do you innovate with limited resources to meet the changing needs of the communities you serve?

Today’s not for profit organization has many tools at its disposal to respond to these challenges.  But using them effectively requires strategy and understanding tailored to the particular characteristics of your organization.  The same techniques that might work well for a commercial enterprise will not necessarily work in the not for profit environment.
