Non-Profits Need Business Innovation Too

With donation opportunities multiplying and many volunteers seeking to invest their expertise as much as if not more than their dollars, non-profits must innovate to adapt and survie.

I am attending the Business Innovation Factory Summit to explore how non-profits and for-profits can align their goals to value that extends beyond donations and profit.

Volunteering is more than attendance, and donating is more than a transaction. I believe volunteers and donations will follow the organizations that optimize their resources to create and demonstrate long-term value and mobilize people around their skills and passions.

Non-profits that create value with their donors and volunteers instead of at their expense will thrive. Those that impose their preferences will see linear and ultimately diminishing returns.

Where do you see the most potential for non-profits to innovate and change?
