Nonprofit executives are leading through a difficult time

We are living in unprecedented times that challenge even the best leaders: the worst recession in our lifetime, a global pandemic, and important social movements pushing for greater equality. In addition to struggling with cash flow and funding, you are undoubtedly also experiencing an increased demand for service and increased anxiety within your team.

You are not alone!

The recession will impact your organization

Board Source found that the majority of nonprofits were negatively impacted by the 2008-2010 recession, with 84% reporting a negative impact. Additionally, 65% of nonprofit leaders reported feeling recession-related anxiety, and 32% were burned out! (source: Daring to Lead 2011)

2021 will be a harder year for nonprofits

The second year of a recession is typically much more difficult on nonprofits. Government stimulus programs decrease, more donors are impacted by the recession, and foundations don’t dramatically increase giving. 

Your organization can still thrive in 2021

But not all organizations were negatively impacted in the last recession. In fact, many experienced significant growth and benefited from opportunities the recession presented (source: Nonprofit Quarterly: Deconstructing The Not So Great Nonprofit Recession)

Get the support necessary for 2021 to be a great year
