The data is then shared to inspire other organizations to develop their revenue generating initiatives.

“The Resourcefullness Award has once again introduced us to many creative initiatives that are making a positive impact in our communities,” said Beth Bird, director of Eide Bailly’s nonprofit practice. “It’s our hope that the awards not only provide funds to outstanding nonprofits but also inspires other nonprofits to consider creative and sustainable streams of revenue.”
