When nonprofit organizations experience hard times, many rely on the old adage that says, “Desperate times call for desperate measures.” How to keep your organization financially stable when the economy is titter-tottering is a huge challenge for both small and large nonprofits. Weathering a bad economy, however, should not send your organization into a tailspin, but instead sharpen your focus and improve your proficiency.
In the for-profit world, companies gain absolutely nothing by retreating…and neither do nonprofit organizations. Instead, you should become focused in your efforts to become organizationally svelte, sharpen your case, get more personal and cultivate existing and prospective donors as if there were no tomorrow.
