MJA Nonprofit Challenge: Maintaining Momentum

One of the stumbling blocks that many nonprofits encounter is starting a project, capital campaign or new program only to have it fizzle out.  There can be many causes for this including the loss of the lead cheerleader, fatigue, or lack of clarity.  But the end result is often the same – less confidence in the organization.

This week’s challenge: focus on activities in your agency that have lost momentum.  Then, list three ways in which you can turn around the situation.  Consider inviting other stakeholders, staff members, donors or volunteers who can serve as a sounding board.  The important thing  — recognize the problem areas before they turn into defeat.

Good luck, and let us know if we can help you overcome your nonprofits’ challenges.
