Setting a Course for Growth
This list is not exhaustive, and I'll add some more to it next week. But if you take nothing else away from this article, remember that if you do nothing differently, you'll be at the same place this time next year as you are right now — or worse, you'll be smaller because you lost 7 percent more donors than you gained.
If you didn't make it in the Philanthropy 400 this year, you're in good company. But that's no reason to be content. What are you going to do differently this week to put (or keep) your nonprofit on a path to growth?
