A FEW CENTRAL BELIEFS

There is a great deal to starting and growing a healthy organization and maintaining vitality to keep it moving forward. Along with vision and goals, you need to preserve and amplify your passion. Here are a few things we've learned to be true:

  • Mission is everything

  • The vision is only relevant and effective if communicated well

  • Board governs, staff manages, yet sometimes there's overlap

  • Every single person in your organization is involved in development

  • The importance of a broad base of funding sources cannot be overstated

  • While passion is the foundation of great nonprofits, effective ones plan — then execute

  • Donors give gladly when their vision for the community is matched to your niche for impact

  • A culture of open, non-critical communication is fundamental to a healthy organization
