Nonprofit Health Checklist

Nonprofit Health Checklist

Is your nonprofit healthy?

The question seems simple enough, and yet, many nonprofit leaders may have trouble answering accurately. Nonprofit organizations provide great opportunities for communities and people to support causes and make an impact that improves the lives of those in need. Yet, without fail, many of these mission-driven organizations close their doors too soon.

The facts: Approximately 50% of nonprofit organizations created just a decade ago have ceased operations and nearly 30% no longer report financial activity.

There’s a solution: In a research study on nonprofit performance from the Concord Leadership Group, nearly 50% of respondents reported that their NPO either does not have a strategic plan or admitted that it does not exist in writing. 77% of those nonprofits surveyed lack a leadership transition plan. Anaford Consulting wants to change that.

How does yours measure up?

Anaford Consulting developed these questions to help you get right down to the basics of nonprofit success. Take a shot and see where you can identify opportunities to improve.
