Continental Breakfast & Networking at 7:30
Presentation at 8:00

Nonprofits confront a daunting paradox. Board members, donors, the IRS, and funders demand competent management, accurate tracking of services, and clear measurement of results. They would also like the nonprofits they support to spend as little as possible on management and infrastructure costs.

How do nonprofits develop and maintain the sophisticated systems required for effective management in an environment which appears to reward under-investment in administrative functions? How do we get the info we need to evaluate our true overhead burden without raising fears of the twin demons of administrative and overhead costs? How will federal, state, and local governments respond to the 2010 GAO Report documenting inconsistent definitions and funding for necessary infrastructure costs?

Join us to explore strategies to:

  • Cope with multiple definitions of administrative, management, indirect, and overhead costs
  • Deal with restrictions and limitations on admin/overhead costs in government and foundation funding
  • Build Board and donor understanding of the value of infrastructure investment
  • Use “capacity building” grants to build the infrastructure needed for sustainability
