All nonprofits strive for sustainability, but numerous nonprofit organizations have a cloudy picture of the revenue and expense drivers needed to deliver their programs.

This ebook reviews the elements to build these types of metrics for mission impact, such as:

  • Financial segmentation and a modern Chart of Accounts which provide the structural basis for reporting and analysis.
  • Transparency of revenue and expense drivers using metrics to monitor your nonprofit’s true financial health.
  • Compliance and Stewardship reports that adhere to FASB regulations and steward donations based on donor intent.

“Organizations that build robust infrastructure—which includes sturdy information technology systems, financial systems, skills training, fundraising processes, and other essential overhead— are more likely to succeed than those that do not. This is not news, and nonprofits are no exception to the rule.”

Ann Goggins Gregory and Dan Howard, Stanford Innovation Review, “Nonprofit Starvation Cycle” Fall 2009 edition
