Scaling Your Nonprofit: Moving from a Solo Operating to a Team with Travis Johnson

by | Apr 5, 2021

Your nonprofit organization is only as strong as its weakest link. And if your nonprofit was previously a solo operation, and now more recently evolving to a team, then you need to know the importance of scaling.

Every nonprofit will have to determine what and when they need to scale itself as an organization. When expanding your organization, you need to consider important points like its infrastructure, budget, team members and even strategy as it relates to your mission. These are so important!

However, “scale” can mean many things. To ensure that you can grow your nonprofit through the most successful way possible, you need to ensure that your organization has certain structures in place that will make for a long-term future you can be proud of.

If you want to learn all there is about scaling your nonprofit, then you need to listen to this episode of A Modern Nonprofit Podcast. In this week’s episode, Travis D. Johnson of the Nonprofit Architect Podcast joins forces with Tosha Anderson of The Charity CFO for an in-depth discussion geared towards board members, charity leaders and aspiring nonprofit professionals.


On this episode, the two converse about important questions such as:

  • What do nonprofits need to scale so they can get paid?
  • What processes need to be in place in order for this to happen?
  • What is holding nonprofits back from taking these steps?
  • Does this process work for solo operations?
  • And more!
