Everyone is getting wise to the symptoms of insufficient overhead, a syndrome we call the Nonprofit Starvation Cycle, but for some reason funding patterns have not changed. What’s holding us back? The cause is simple but profound: the failure to understand the economic diversity of nonprofits and what costs drive value. Nonprofits have different missions and hence very different cost structures. A lab aiming to cure cancer needs expensive lab facilities; a global NGO network has core support costs that include knowledge sharing, complex financial ledgers and global travel. Join us as we explore the ways in which understanding these differences can serve as the beginning of understanding how to break the starvation cycle.
