The best nonprofits make a lasting impact in their communities, create products and services which customers trust and feel good about buying, provide meaningful work that employees actually want to do, and bring people and ideas together in progressive ways.

Rising inflation, decreasing donations, an impending recession, and new "competition" from B-Corps and lean social enterprise startups are stress-testing traditionally funded (and minded) nonprofits even further.

If you're already walking, well this will help check that your shoelaces are still tied. You'll learn how your nonprofit can quickly become more effective, adaptable, and resilient by: 

Like chess, these don't take long to understand but are far more complex than they initially appear. Each month you'll also receive a new actionable resource that does focus on nonprofit social enterprise / earned income strategy.
