    Life is full of ups and downs and twists and turns. And, when it comes to operating a nonprofit, expecting the unexpected is the best way to secure your organization for success down the line.

    That's why it is paramount that every organization has a business continuity plan. These plans are designed to help an organization thrive even during an unpredictable event.

  • People across the country continue to rally together during our nation’s most challenging times to help our neighbors. This isn’t new. But it is newsworthy. We’ve witnessed everyday people springing into action after the September 11 attacks, on every Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, after devastating natural disasters along our coasts and across the nation and, most recently, in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    About 9.2 million American women (of 12.29 million workers) work in the nonprofit sector. That is 75% of the nonprofit workforce, which is the third largest workforce in the country.

Based on recent history, a recession could mean a prolonged period of hardship for nonprofits. During both the major recession from 2007 through 2009 and the brief economic downturn at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, recovery came much more slowly for nonprofits than for the economy as a whole.

    Back in November, I published this blog encouraging nonprofit leaders to begin building relationships with elected officials by sending an email congratulating them on their victory. I was surprised and delighted by how much traffic and praise the blog generated. Yet the response I found myself thinking about the most was this question left on LinkedIn by my colleague Veronica LaFemina:
