This is a topic that has been on my mind often, as I recently was voted in as the President of a local Non-Profit Corporation. I believe wholeheartedly in the mission of the organization, and have a passion to see our impact grow exponentially within the context of limited resources.
I have followed up with others in similar positions to hear their words of wisdom and discover lessons learnt. I spent hours reading articles and watching video clips online, looking for little tidbits of knowledge that could be applied.
I thought perhaps, I should share some of the content (in particular, the TED Talks) which I found to best capture the theme of the feedback I received. A couple overarching points come to mind:
- Never underestimate the power of Marketing
- Strategically invest money, in order to multiply returns and impact
- Know your mission, and use revenue from other supplementary profit making activities to achieve it
Do you have a suggestion for, or experiences with Non-Profit management?
Please share below, and let the discussion begin!
