Our Next Theme: Transitions

Volume 4, Number 2:  To everything there is a season…and as seasons change, so do the people, programs, and focus of organizations. In this issue of Nonprofit Performance Magazine, we will focus on the inevitable transitions in the nonprofit world. Our contributors will lay out a road map for managing change in the leadership and governance team, how to find new life after the “death” of a program, and how the conclusion of a grant can actually provide new opportunities for a nonprofit to flourish.

Future Themes:

 

Volume 4, Number 3: “The Boardroom”
The fundraiser? The dead weight? The network developer? The one who never makes it to a meeting? The program advocate? The naysayer? What are the archetypes of board members that are present in your nonprofit?
One of the greatest opportunities and hardest challenges of the nonprofit sector is found in the boardroom. In this issue of Nonprofit Performance Magazine, we examine the importance of recruiting and engaging a strong, active board of directors for the success of a nonprofit. Pouring value into the development of an active, focused board might be the most important thing that your organization could ever do. So how does your process look? Deadline, June 30, 2017

In this issue of Nonprofit Performance Magazine, we get insight from the social media influencers and organizations that have failed and flourished on their way to engaging their communities for good. Deadline, September 30, 2017

 

Volume 5, Number 1: “Public-Private Partnerships”
What happens when your corporate sponsors begin to grow weary in their funding? Pitching for donations in an ever-growing crowd of nonprofits isn’t easy. Isn’t there a better way to fund your budget?
