OUR STARTFounder Kristin Bennett has been managing nonprofit organizations of all types for over 27 years and in 2007, decided that she would go from a one-woman shop and expand to help multiple nonprofit clients. Nonprofit Resources was then born. The company was founded to help client organizations share resources and operate more efficiently. NPR has grown and now employs a highly qualified team of specialists who tackle everything from strategy and executive-level work to event management, graphics, technology, and operations.
WHAT WE DOWe enjoy long-term relationships with clients and specialize in meeting the needs of small and medium-sized nonprofits. Every member of our dedicated staff values their university education, yet continues to pursue supplemental specialized nonprofit certificates and credentials. This keeps us at the top of our game, and well tuned-in to what’s happening in the nonprofit arena. Nonprofit Resources is currently the most experienced, and only accredited organization of its type in a five-state area. There are four ways nonprofits are typically managed. Most still follow a standard business model of captive employees and regular payroll. These days, however, more organizations than ever are stepping outside the norm to find a more efficient and professional way of doing things. Maybe it’s time for your organization to evaluate and shift with the changing times. Where are you now? Where should you be?

TAKING THE FIRST STEP
The first step is to determine if you’re interested in exploring either managed model or assisted model. Your Board of Directors and current staff should carefully consider your current situation, and decide if your organization might benefit from a change.
Here are some questions you should discuss as a Board:
- Are we as effective as we’d like to be?
- Does our organization keep pace with today’s advanced technology?
- Do we feel our current staff is professional and efficient?
- Is overhead too high?
- Are we clear in our mission and vision, and do operations reflect our passion?
- What do we wish could be different?
WHY DOES THIS MAKE SENSE?
Specifically, we help nonprofits:
- Focus on quality and efficiency. Of vital importance, we lend an objective, third-party assessment.
- Maximize and monitor revenue. We help prioritize staff time put toward revenue-generating and collection activities.
- Keep the ideas coming to do more with less. Because we work with multiple clients, we facilitate idea-sharing among executives.
- Continuously communicate value. We keep boards and committees informed.
