Understanding and Changing Your Business Model in 60 Minutes
Too often program goals are discussed separately from financial means, although we all know that both must be discussed together. Jan Masaoka will present the methodology for doing so from the book she recently co-authored, Nonprofit Sustainability: Making Strategic Decisions for Financial Viability. The result is a fresh look at choosing the mix of programs, earned income, and donations that will be sustainable for your organization. When presented at last year's Stanford Social Innovation Review conference for nonprofit executives, it was the highest rated session.
Nonprofit Overhead Project
A window for changing the paradigm on nonprofit overhead and indirect costs has opened, thanks to the new OMB guidance on improving government contracting with nonprofits -- particularly regarding support for funding indirect costs -- as well as increased philanthropic attention to the funding of nonprofit overhead. This window presents a tremendous opportunity to improve the financial sustainability of nonprofits and service ecosystems, and to create government-foundation-nonprofit partnerships working together on making the nonprofit capital market more efficient.
Jan Masaoka is CEO of the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits), a statewide policy alliance of more than 10,000 nonprofits speaking to government, philanthropy, and the public at large.
CalNonprofits recently released the first-ever economic impact study of California's nonprofits: Causes Count: The Economic Power of California's Nonprofit Sector. With offices in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Sacramento, CalNonprofits works with legislators and regulators to strengthen the business and regulatory climate for nonprofits.Read Full Biography
