The board's sustainability role

Today's 'gift' comes in the form of a 2007 article published in the Nonprofit Quarterly, offered in online form here.

The article, an interview with Richard Brewster of the National Center for Nonprofit Enterprise, encourages boards to take a more proactive role in defining and building short- and long-term financial sustainability of their organizations.

Brewster gets straight to the point of a topic that may cause many boards to squirm. Your board may find it to be a good starting point for a discussion that members may be challenged to initiate on their own.
