Making the most of your nonprofit’s program budget
Abstract: No nonprofit wants to cut programs that it believes further its mission and meet its constituents’ needs. But financial hard times have forced many charities to scale back or even eliminate programs. This article explains how nonprofits can benefit from the occasional program review to ensure they’re getting the biggest bang for their buck. It discusses the basics of doing research, measuring progress, and improving existing programs or starting new ones. A sidebar talks about strategic partnerships with other nonprofits.
