NonProfit Project List
Does any of the below look familiar? Does it look like something you want, but can’t seem to get? Are these projects reminiscent of the same list you seem to create every year at the staff retreat but just can’t seem to finish?
I’ve been there.
As a nonprofit, you need to run like a business but on a payroll that is nothing close to a traditional business. Volunteers are a blessing, for sure, and we all know you’d be nothing without them. But trying to run day-to-day programs and operations on a slim staff and with the help of volunteers presents an incredible challenge that few outside the industry can ever appreciate. I can help you make your staff – paid and volunteer – more productive, more efficient, and much more effective. Sometimes, it just takes someone outside the agency to help you get on track so you can continue to do what you do best.
