Posted by Nancy Huckaba and Hal Wallach on Thu, Oct 28, 2021 @ 12:02 PM

Candidates for non-profit leadership roles often have for-profit or commercial backgrounds, and the reality is that non-profits are often unable to match the salaries they received in those roles. However, recent studies indicate that, among top talent, salary isn’t always the most important factor in a total rewards package.

Not-For-Profits Wanting to Reduce Spend? Take a Look at Contracts
Posted by Mark McCarthy on Tue, Sep 24, 2019 @ 12:22 PM

Not-for-profit organizations must be vigilant and careful shepherds of their monetary resources. Sometimes sound financial management takes some outside-of-the-box thinking. Not-for-profits do not have the same avenues to offset rising operational costs that for-profits might. They cannot, for example, raise additional revenue through price increases, product or packaging enhancements, or even service line extensions.

5 Ways Not-For-Profits Can Harness the Power of Their Data
Posted by Scott Moody on Fri, Nov 30, 2018 @ 10:42 AM

Data can say a lot about which processes work and which don’t, but with the volume of information a not-for-profit organization is collecting on a daily basis, that message can easily get lost in the shuffle. Robust data analytics programs help to separate the story from all the numbers.

Analytics programs help to do the heavy lifting when it comes to information processing, distilling volumes of data into real time, and actionable insights. When a data analytics program is properly constructed, it can support risk management efforts, budget decisions, and strategic planning. Data analysis helps identify areas of key risk and fraudulent activity. It can be used to evaluate a program’s ability to meet its targets and highlight any inefficiencies. Data analytics can also play a role in donor management, picking up trends in contributions and charitable giving that may not be immediately obvious to a not-for-profit’s board or management team.

4 Steps to Restoring Your Not-For-Profit’s Reputation after Financial Fraud
Posted by John Mulvaney on Wed, Nov 28, 2018 @ 03:29 PM

The risk of significant financial fraud may be lower for not-for-profit organizations than it is for for-profit entities, but its impact can be just as paralyzing.

Not-for-profit organizations represented only 9 percent of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners’ study of 2,690 fraud cases in its 2018 Report to the Nations. Regardless of the incidence, there’s an obvious financial impact from fraud. Total fraud cases in the 2018 Report to the Nations resulted in estimated losses of $7.1 billion, which the ACFE acknowledged is only a fraction of the true cost of global fraud. The study concluded that the median cost of fraud to not-for-profit organizations was $75,000, but these costs do not include the cost of attorneys, forensic accountants, and other specialists who will be called upon to assist with the investigation.
