Project: Nonprofits play an undeniably critical and integral role in American life. Given the size of the nonprofit sector and its integral place in society, it is not enough to mean well—and certainly not enough to do well anymore. The sector now faces numerous and significant challenges as it struggles with an impending leadership deficit as current leaders retire, many being baby boomers, and organizations must compete with other sectors for talent; a slowdown in fundraising as donations and government funding dry up; and internal inefficiency problems, as it wrestles with a lack of impact driven metrics and indicators, financial inefficiencies, and lack of effective complimentary strategic planning. Amidst these obstacles, the nonprofit sector will have to innovate to survive and regain its footing. These papers outline some key ingredients to establishing a blueprint for change and describe how nonprofit accelerators can play a role in helping the right organizations.
