Sustainability Plans For 
Non-Profit Organizations

It's easy to get started ...

Non-profit organizations, particularly those focusing on strengthening sectors or industries that are vital to the national economy, are typically well-funded and financed during their start-up phase which usually lasts 2-3 years. International donors whose strategic objectives can be satisfied through the successful work of the organization are particularly receptive to awarding grants that aim at helping the organization in reaching self-sustainability. Numerous other local donors are also enticed to extend a helping hand, whether through financial or other means.

... BUT TOUGH TO SUSTAIN

Regardless of the nature of the donors or their objectives, all share the purpose of helping the organization to the point where it is able to “stand on its own feet”, and which is accomplished by building and adopting a solid sustainability model. As such, unless the organization is able to clearly demonstrate that it will reach a healthy degree of self-sustainability, it will hardly find any donor who is willing to invest funds or other types of support into an organization that is likely to falter after the support program ends.

Most importantly - NGO's must remain relevant

NGO's, regardless of their nature, exist primarily to server the interests of a particular sector or group of constituents. In order to remain relevant and of interest to those, an NGO needs to continuously engage in programs of work (activities) that are deemed beneficial and relevant by their constituents. These activities must in turn be not only self-sustainable, but also contribute toward the organization's overhead and administrative expenses.

Where we come into play ...

This is where Pinnacle can play an important role in elevating your non-profit organization to entirely new levels; we have done this many times and written several business plans that resulted in the formation of many business associations. We have also continued working with them post-launch so they grew and flourished, and serve their constituents in the ways they were intended to. Last but not least, we have also worked at several NGO's and business associations, so we truly know what it takes to succeed in this business, and most importantly, to make a difference!
