Are Nonprofits Sustainable?

The question of nonprofit sustainability came into greater focus last week, after I had lunch with Professor Adlai Wertman from the USC/Marshall School of Business, founding director of Marshall’s Society and Business Lab and founder of nonprofit Chrysalis. Wertman has pushed wide open a national discussion of applying entrepreneurship and business principles to alleviate not only poverty, but many other social ills as well.

Wertman’s spirit of social sector entrepreneurship should be having an impact upon almost every discussion in the nonprofit sector — including fundraising.
