WEBINAR REPLAY: Strengthening Nonprofits with a Business Approach

Why do nonprofits have a culture of martyrdom, scarcity, and survival? Why don’t they have clear value propositions and struggle for donations? These are some of the questions Donald Summers of Altruist Partners tackles in this informative webinar.


Listen as we discuss the following:

  • Why nonprofits should use business terms – the language of their board members’ daily lives, their corporate sponsors, and many of their donors
  • The benefits and general process of developing a business plan for a philanthropic organization
  • How nonprofits can diversify their revenue streams beyond donations, to achieve accelerated growth
  • What a value proposition for a nonprofit looks like
  • How to create dashboards that keep donors, board members, and staff in touch with goals and outcomes
