For nonprofit organizations, identifying funding sources and deciding the suitable model for the organizations are some of the greatest challenges. This was even harder last year during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, as almost every industry suffered from coronavirus-related effects. The sources of funding shrunk as many donors focused on recovering from the pandemic. However, as we approach the second half of 2021, there is a sign of an increase in donations.

Don't Fall Into These Nonprofit Traps.

Nonprofits can attain maximum success if the right processes are put in place. However, not all of them have efficient strategies to allow them to thrive and the well-meaning people who dedicate their lives to guide the organization's success. Unlike for-profits, starting a charity must be approached differently since a slight misstep could ruin everything.

Challenging Assumptions About Adapting Nonprofit Programming to the Digital Realm

Seventy-four percent of nonprofits responding to a recent survey conducted by CAF America ( said they had “adapted programming to the digital realm” when faced with COVID-19 challenges.
