Speaker: Jeanne Allen,

Learn how to prepare a business plan that will help your nonprofit track its performance and be a tool for taking it into the future.  Normally, a nonprofit creates a business plan because they want to manage better -- to share it internally, or with potential donors.  A business plan is an important component to operating nonprofits efficiently and successfully. To remain in existence, nonprofit organizations find that it is necessary to perform in a more businesslike fashion.
