Navigating Nonprofit Growth – There Once Was A Little Nonprofit

When organizations hit their stride and decide to grow, unexpected tensions can arise, seemingly out of nowhere. The visionary leaders who started the organization often find themselves at odds with those who want more formality—and everyone thinks their organization is the only one to have such difficulties. In fact, growing pains are common when a nonprofit begins to move from one stage to the next.

In this session, participants will learn about the three stages of nonprofit development and the pitfalls sometimes associated with each new stage. We will discuss practical strategies for successfully guiding your organization from one stage to the next in the growth environment.
