Can We Sustain Ourselves? Facilitated Networking Discussion
In this networking discussion, Steven outlines the revenue streams of the literacy field versus the overall charitable sector. He finds a reliance on government funding and shows overall percentages of donations and fundraising – with great variance across the country. Linda then outlines the potential issue of mission drift when following monetary sources, especially when a funder’s agenda does not align with an organization’s mandate.
