There are nearly a million nonprofit organizations in the United States vying for funding from an ever-diminishing pool of resources. Whether you're directing or working for a nonprofit or founding a new one, your biggest concern is how to make it sustainable through tough economic times. This book shows you how to keep your organization working regardless of whether you are successful in securing grants. You'll learn how to obtain space, equipment and tools at little or no cost, how to minimize insurance and legal fees, and how to use volunteers and keynote programs to stay lean and successful. Checklists help you initiate and file paperwork and create a master assets and inventory document that will keep your directors, officers and volunteers up to date on everything you own and lease, including Internet and social media resources. Realistic hands-on strategies are provided that can save your organization significant amounts of money each year and prevent the mistakes that cause so many nonprofits to fail.
