Sustainability among nonprofit organizations


Sustainability is a popular topic among nonprofit organizations.  What exactly is it?  How is it achieved?  Is it only about financial resiliency?  Some argue not.


For those nonprofit organizations interested in exploring more deeply, here are a few resources:


  • A small, but insightful book takes you on a journey to learn more deeply about those factors that are essential to real organizational sustainability.  A copy of Focus on Sustainability by Dennis McMillian of The Foraker Group is available for those interested.  Please contact Susan at 525-8863 or


  • Jeanne Bell, CEO of CompassPoint, has an article titled Beyond Financial Oversight: Expanding the Boardís Role in the Pursuit of Sustainability.  It is available at or on the Learning Centerís webpage under Resources, Article/Book/DVDís.
