I was recently reading a publication that supports the work of nonprofits and came across an article about trends for nonprofits in the year 2015. As you might imagine, the article covered everything from donor relations to board development to marketing and branding. The article also mentioned the importance of partnerships with consultants.
To summarize, the article reports that there is a growing trend amongst nonprofits to use consultants to outsource work. In times past, all work needed to be done in-house. However, today because of technology, work can be done anywhere at any time. More and more nonprofits are finding that they can use on-demand services in much the same way as for-profit businesses.
So, what does this mean for your small to medium sized nonprofit?
- First, it means you can compete with “the big guys.” You can look like you have a staff of 20 at your fingertips to get everything done.
- Outsourcing your administrative tasks, grant writing, branding, etc. can help you grow your organization. You can focus on fulfilling the mission while the other “stuff” is being taken care of.
- Your organization can save money by partnering with experts on a contractual basis.
- Your organization can be active on social media venues that are relevant for your organization, its volunteers and its donors.
