3:55 pm – Nonprofit Efficiency: Managing Risk, Overhead and Failure

Risk management is a tool that helps nonprofits deal with uncertainty. Leaders of nonprofits must identify and manage risks that threaten their missions and operations, while empowering them to leverage opportunities like the implementation of mandatory electronic filing, and take bold, mission-advancing risks. They must be looking at their overhead expenses as that can be a consideration for donor contribution. It’s also important to consider the importance of customer and vendor relationships and how to balance cost with these valued relationships. Overall the goal to run an efficient nonprofit can be faced with many challenges.
