The Foundations of a well-run Not-for-Profit

What makes a not-for-profit ‘well-run’?  Good Foundations recently conducted a survey to help identify “what makes a not-for-profit well-run?”

The objective of the research was to clarify how the sector defines and measures whether or not a not-for-profit organisation is ‘well-run’.  The survey indicated that the two most important elements in being well-run are:

  1. Being crystal clear on your purpose, vision and direction
  2. Having great people, with a particular focus on great leadership.

By reflecting on the issues raised in the survey it is hoped that ultimately as a sector we all move towards being better run.
