A McKinsey study of 196 C-suite nonprofit leaders released this month explored today’s state of leadership in the social sector to uncover what leaders need to succeed. The study found that two primary barriers preventing nonprofit leaders from securing the resources they need include:
- A lack of understanding on how to find the right resources; and
- A feeling that the right resources are inaccessible because they are too expensive.
While this finding is not surprising, it is unfortunate. When social good leaders understand the value of and learn how to leverage pro bono resources in marketing and communications, strategy, HR, technology, board leadership, legal and finance, they gain access to top-end solutions that can dramatically enhance the effectiveness of their organization’s mission. In fact, Taproot Foundation has designed programs to greatly enhance a nonprofit’s ability to leverage the incredible talent that exists in their own community—all at no cost.
