As I collected success stories for 7 Nonprofit Income Streams, I met an executive director recovering from near bankruptcy. The entity’s challenges have not become public. To support their recovery, they remain nameless in this paper. However, nameless or not, they have important lessons I’m pleased to share with you that might help protect your organization.
Pick one lesson. Re-read it. Decide how you will apply it to strengthen and protect your organization.
