This book highlights the six practices of high impact non-profits. It’s worth the weed and read if you don’t need info on government grants and you have no intention of becoming an advocacy group, but want to get your nonprofit focused on effective strategies. Putting forces in motion for good and not just putting forth effort toward good causes creates sustained momentum. For the non government funded advocacy groups, this is worthwhile;
· Harness market forces and get businesses on board with the mission. Create meaningful experiences for donors.
· Outsiders and volunteers can become evangelists for the cause if cultivated properly.
· Build your network and your knowledge base. As you build your knowledge base, share it with other nonprofits.
The energies of a nonprofit are volunteers, donors and passions. Getting them focused and active on the mission requires cultivation. Sustaining the motion means the story stays told, the evangelists spread the word and the donor get high impact returns.
