NMP 646 — Healthy Solutions for Non-Profits in Challenging Times
Nonprofit Management and Philanthropy
In these challenging times, non-profits face significant risk for declining health and effectiveness. The reasons for gradual or even sudden decline are often easy to recognize, but frequently, very difficult to solve. The recent upswing of non-profit failures speaks urgently to the need for healthy solutions for struggling or even failing agencies. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce suggests that most non-profits that fail do so because of internal mechanics, not external ones. This course examines how and why non-profits get into trouble, or, why they fail completely and what tools the executive director or president has to reverse negative trends or avert failure.
