The Nonprofit Starvation Cycle

More than 65% of nonprofit leaders say they are cutting overhead to get through these tough times. This is alarming, given that most organizations already skimp on critical infrastructure and capacity investments that are necessary to deliver results. 

Join Bridgespan Group’s Don Howard and Ann Goggins Gregory, authors of Stanford Social Innovation Review’s “The Nonprofit Starvation Cycle,” for a live webinar to discuss the dynamics of this vicious cycle of overhead costs. 

The cycle starts with funders’ unrealistic expectations about how much it costs to run a nonprofit. As a result of these expectations, nonprofits often misrepresent their costs while skimping on vital systems, thus feeding the perception that they can run with almost no overhead. No one—funders, nonprofits and especially beneficiaries—benefits from perpetuating the cycle, and it’s time to take action.
