As a nonprofit organization you need profits to cover the full cost of delivering on your missions. These profits ensure organizations can manage cash flow, navigate risks, adapt to change, and have adequate facilities. Yet, very real obstacles make this difficult to achieve – restrictive grants and contracts, competing needs, and funders and boards that don’t want to support “rich” organizations.

This online training will help nonprofit leaders make a compelling and convincing case for what your organization needs to achieve financial stability. It will outline the steps for quantifying what and how much capital you need, for articulating those needs to internal and external stakeholders with specific language and strategies for managing to surpluses. It will also provide practical ways to navigate common obstacles for managing to a surplus.
