B. COMPETING FOR PRIVATE FUNDS AS A PUBLIC ENTITY

Ten Nonprofit Funding Models (Spring 2009) – Stanford Social Innovation Review
Through our research, we have identified 10 nonprofit models that are commonly used by the largest nonprofits in the United States. Our intent is not to prescribe a single approach for a given nonprofit to pursue. Instead, we hope to help nonprofit leaders articulate more clearly the models that they believe could support the growth of their organizations, and use that insight to examine the potential and constraints associated with those models.

The Public Financing Crisis: Can Philanthropy Shoulder the Burden (webinar recording)
Changing Our World, Inc.
For many nonprofits, the last two decades have brought increased financial interdependence with state and Federal sources of support as they have become the critical partners of public programs. Changing Our World's research has sought to examine the impact of the public financial crises for states on nonprofit organizations. We have sought to examine the severity of the budget crises for different states, how those crises ultimately affect the bottom line of nonprofit organizations, how philanthropy has responded, and equally important, what are the practical lessons learned for nonprofits and steps that can be taken to avoid such utter dependence and strengthen current revenues.
