Balancing the Demands of Business With Your Not-for-Profit Mission

As a result of the uncertainty in financial markets and the resulting economic turmoil, philanthropists and other charitable donors may be unable to contribute as much as they would like to, which can result in flat or even declining revenue growth for not-for-profit (NFP) organizations. The reduction in revenue – not to mention the loss on investments – as well as intense regulatory oversight and scrutiny translate to significant challenges for NFP institutions.

To effectively achieve your overall mission, it is imperative to secure funding by demonstrating valuable program outcomes to your stakeholders, while at the same time improving operational efficiencies and ensuring compliance with financial and regulatory requirements.

NFP industry leaders must make crucial decisions about fiscal management, collaboration, and outsourcing opportunities. With the rising costs of operations and declining endowments that force budget cuts, NFPs need to identify new ways to achieve business efficiencies and improve cash flow, while remaining committed to their mission and accountable to their stakeholders.

One of the key factors that differentiates Crowe is our industry-focused engagement professionals, not just in regard to their accounting, financial advisory, and tax expertise, but also with regard to their appointments to the committees of leading national standard-setting bodies and regulators.
