Leslie Bonner & Kate Sphar Collaborate to Provide Nonprofit Consulting Services
consulting services as of the end of the year. We extend congratulations to Kate Dewey on her new role as President of the Forbes Funds.
We are pleased to announce that as veteran consultants, and DK alumni, we are joining forces to provide our Nonprofit Community with customer-centered services that grow and sustain individual organizations and the sector as whole.
Nonprofit Sustainability and the Iron Triangle
We believe that in order for a nonprofit to be sustainable a balance must be struck between the organization's mission/programs, the human capacity or talent, and the financial assets that are available. As one aspect grows, or shrinks, so should the others. The graphic below illustrates this concept. Note the triangle is made of iron, not rubber. This would prevent what many nonprofits try to do – stretch their limited people and financial assets to meet expanding mission or programs. To do this stretching thing over the long term is not sustainable. It can produce the same result as overstretching rubber band – a complete and sometimes painful break.
* The Iron Triangle is adapted from the Nonprofit Finance Fund, Linking Mission and Money
Just as the Sustainability Triangle illustrates, our nonprofit services fall into three similar groupings. Our strategic plans and assessments also focus in these three areas.
