Improving Long-term Performance: Business Planning for Nonprofit of All Sizes

DateFebruary 7, 2013

A business plan is a crucial tool for nonprofits of all sizes. It sets out the strategic goals of the organization along with cohesive financial, marketing, and operational plans that together demonstrate the organization's ability to meet those goals. Business planning is no longer limited to the largest nonprofit organizations, as small and medium nonprofits adopt this planning process to better plan for long-term sustainability.
