Too often program goals are discussed separately from financial means, although we all know that both must be discussed together. Jan Masaoka will present the methodology for doing so from the book she recently co-authored, Nonprofit Sustainability: Making Strategic Decisions for Financial Viability. The result is a fresh look at choosing the mix of programs, earned income, and donations that will be sustainable for your organization. When presented at last year’s Stanford Social Innovation Review conference for nonprofit executives, it was the highest rated session.
