Why Nonprofits Should Make Money, Not Just Raise It

Wednesday, May 22, 2019

3:00–4:00 p.m. CT

The nonprofit sector has fought the stigma for years because someone decided to name us by our tax status. It’s not the way we should run our businesses—and yes, your nonprofit needs to be treated like a business. In order to allow your mission to not just survive and truly thrive, we need to diversify our revenue, and not continue to rely on traditional donations and grants.

Don’t miss this webinar where we give nonprofits the tools they need to start generating revenue and stop depending just on donations to run their organization.

You’ll learn:

  • The phrases that nonprofits keep saying to themselves to perpetuate the nonprofit mentality.
  • Earned income examples of successful nonprofits.
  • Overcoming fears of earned income and if it’s even right for you.
  • Beginning a diversified income strategy for your nonprofit.
