-Acquisition of sufficient resources to enable the organization to fulfill its mission – Clearly articulated goals and objectives, a positive public image, strategic planning, and collaborative endeavors contribute to an organization’s capacity for attracting resources. Organizations lacking in these areas encounter difficulties in raising funds and volunteers to support their cause.
-Sound administrative practices, professionalism among staff, good internal and external communications, and effective board governance contribute to the overall health and well being of the nonprofit. Organizations that do not use their resources effectively limit their ability to make a social impact on society.
-The boards of nonprofit organizations can either be part of the problem or part of the solution with respect to the acquisition of resources or use of existing resources.
