Three Important Questions for Nonprofits
  • How do you define success meaning results from
    your services?
  • How do you know for sure when success has been
    achieved?
  • Half way through your program, how do you know
    that you have enough time and money left to get
    to the success you have defined?

Funder vs. Investor
  • The Funder
  • Uses multiple criteria to select grants may use
    a point system
  • Believes fairness means distance from applicants
  • Considers decisions the high point of their work
  • Monitors for grant compliance
  • The Investor
  • Answers 3 questions of each opportunity
  • What are we buying?
  • What are the chances well get it?
  • Is this the best possible use of money?
  • Believes fairness means appropriate engagement to
    fully understand
  • Considers initial investment only the starting
    point
  • Asks How can I help?

Investment Approach

    area
  • Clearly defined, verifiable health gains
  • Alignment between organizations mission and core
    know how
  • Prior achievements in most relevant work is
    strong
  • Key individuals have necessary attributes and
    capabilities
  • Organization is financially sound based on most
    recent audit
  • Process is clear in terms of intensity/duration
    to make a difference
  • Milestones are clear and presumed predictors of
    success
  • Commitment from key partners
  • Cost for human gains is strong compared to
    similar opportunities

Why are partnerships essential to sustainability?
10
What is sustainability? What does it mean to your
organization?
11
What is Sustainability?
  • In a general sense, it is the capacity to
    maintain a certain process or state indefinitely.
  • How does this translate to grantmakers?
  • Do you have the right partners at the table?
  • Do you have multiple investors/revenue streams?
  • What will happen to your project or staff after
    the grant is complete?
  • Do you have the right people (sparkplugs) doing
    the work?

12
Partnerships help achieve sustainability
  • Community problems community solutions
  • Improved health gains
  • Nonprofits operate in cost-constrained
    environments (time, talent and money)
  • Partnerships help leverage limited resources
  • Grantmakers invest in collaborations, not silos
