The Big Picture
The funding landscape for non-profits has changed--less core funding; more project-based grants; overstretched donors; increased competition for corporate sponsorships. And yet, the issues non-profits are working to address are growing and becoming increasingly complex. Non-profits need to become increasingly entrepreneurial and innovative to become financially resilient and meet the needs of their communities.
At the same time, positive change cannot happen in a vacuum. A supportive eco-system includes capacity building and mentorship, increased opportunities through procurement and access to financing through social finance. We see the trees AND the forest.
