Money Helps Non-profits Achieve Their Missions. So Let’s Make More Of It.

Earned Income strategies for non-profit organizations.
By: Odell Coleman
Feb. 16, 2010 - PRLog -- It’s probably fair to say that changing the world would be difficult enough for 1,000,000+ non-profit organizations even if they never faced funding issues. So now that economic conditions are cutting down these entities right and left, perhaps it’s time for NPO’s to get smarter about their organizational model.
To be crudely blunt, your noble intentions and giving natures are not enough. You need to think like a businessperson. Don’t worry, your mission won’t change. In fact more money will help ensure that you’re still around to fulfill that mission in the first place.
You need to achieve better leverage on your existing resources, and come up with creative, unthought-of ideas for earned income. It could be a matter of increased efficiency, or maximizing value from (probably limited) resources, or revenue-generating activities, or all of the above.
You need help from people who know business. We repeat, your mission won’t be compromised—only fortified and safeguarded and perhaps even attained more quickly.
