risk management for nonprofits


Risk Doesn’t Have To Be a Four-Letter Word

Risks can be unsettling. It is easier to focus on what’s urgent while ignoring what’s necessary and important. But if you can create ways to make it easier to see and address threats and opportunities, you can:

  • Increase clarity
  • Reduce costs
  • Simplify tasks
    Streamline processes
  • Develop new initiatives, and;
  • Increase sustainability and resilience

Knowing your risks can help you increase your awareness of the threats and opportunities faced by your organization. You can identify unnecessary costs and find fixes to unlock additional resources.


Does any of that sound familiar?

“Too much of our knowledge is stuck in the minds of our key personnel. If we lose any of them, we’re sunk.”
“If we’re honest, we move from crisis to crisis and can’t get ahead of the curve.”
“We want to grow, but we need a repeatable model that doesn’t require constant supervision.”
“We are on the cusp of great things, but we need to make sure we look and act professional to the outside world. More than that, we actually need to be professional.”

Then listen to this podcast and learn how knowing your risks can give you your best insight.
