Despite the value that nonprofits add to the quality of life in America, the survival of many charitable organizations is uncertain. Due to a convergence of factors—including declining resources, increasing demands to deliver more services, widespread misunderstanding about nonprofits, mounting operational complexities, and fragmentation within the sector—nonprofits find themselves operating in a most challenging environment. The communities we serve and the issues we care about suffer when we are fragmented and isolated. Now more than ever, nonprofits need to unite around our common values, develop a shared vision and priorities, and exercise our collective voice for a better future.
