Partly due to the Great Recession, partly due to rapid advances in technology, and in part due to changes in our culture, we have entered into what many refer to as the Age of the New Normal. And this New Normal is affecting every facet of how organizations conduct their business but particularly how they are funded.
For decades, many nonprofits have relied largely or exclusively on government funding to achieve their missions. If yours is one of them, and you haven't already experienced a decrease in your funding, brace yourself. It's just a matter of time.
The Age of the New Normal demands that nonprofits start seeking alternate sources of funding. Patrick Henry Families service has operated that way since its beginning over five decades ago. We do not accept government funding and that is the way we have always done it.
Take Away: We (Patrick Henry Family Services) do not accept government funding and that is the way we have always done it.
