Behind every nonprofit organization is a talented, passionate and dedicated nonprofit founder. This individual likely has a transformational mission and vision for improving the community that he or she is part of, which is why they started a nonprofit in the first place.
Nonprofit leaders are many things: strong leaders, collaborative and hard-working. However, it is becoming increasingly common for a not-for-profit leader to be a millennial. As a millennial nonprofit founder, an individual might have greater insight towards the needs of the under-represented and under-funded sectors, which make these organizations extremely valuable for the people that are being served.
Are you a nonprofit founder who is passionate about helping your community? If so, you’ve probably experienced many challenges and obstacles over the past years/months/days as it relates to you achieving your organization’s mission.
