Perla Ni is CEO and Founder of Greatnonprofits.org, the largest nonprofit review site (think Yelp for nonprofits). Donors and investors want to know that their money is put to good use. But simply measuring overhead ratios does not give the full story. Instead you need to understand the impact on the ground the nonprofit is making; and that you can get from a holistic 360 view that GreatNonprofits allows for this 360 feedback in the form of constituent reviews because often the person receiving the service is best able to relay impact.
Nonprofits need to have a strategic plan and, more than ever, need to share and market that strategic plan with potential corporate funders and partners. If you have a strategic plan, don't put it on the shelf - market it!
