NEST0005 - Financial Management

A diversified fundraising portfolio is essential to the financial health of any nonprofit organization.  Over-reliance on one funding source or fundraising technique can threaten an organization’s solvency should a major funding source become unavailable due to a downturn in the economy, a donor’s change in funding priorities or other unexpected factors. This session will provide an overview of the revenue sources that typically comprise a ‘healthy’ fundraising portfolio, techniques and strategies to solicit funds from those sources, and internal mechanisms that nonprofits use to sustain their relationships with funders over the long-term.
