NFP wshopimageManaging a not for profit (or for purpose) entity is not what it used to be. The level of competition has increased 10 fold and the amount of money available for supporting your activities has decreased by an even bigger number. Throw on top of this all the added expectations of corporate governance, best practice, competing for great staff and the high burn out rates and you wonder why you do it.

That’s easy – you’re passionate about the cause, but is that enough to make you sustainable? Times are a-changing and this sector has many opportunities and challenges not affecting other sectors.

When:           Fridays - 13 July, 24 August, 21 September, 5 October, 26 October, 9 November

Where:          Lighthouse, Unit 6 - 65 Tennant Street, Fyshwick ACT
