Nonprofit Management 101: The 9 Skills You Need

Starting a nonprofit, leading, or working for a nonprofit? Here are 9 skills you need for nonprofit management and leadership. #Nonprofits #Nonprofit #StartingANonprofit

I am a nonprofit founder who now works full time as the Executive Director for the nonprofit I started many years ago. I grew my skills at nonprofit management and leadership over several years - I definitely didn’t start with them! But, looking back, if I’d known all it would take to successfully run my nonprofit organization, I would have invested more in some areas earlier on.

If you are starting a nonprofit, thinking about it, or have just started a nonprofit, or KNOW someone who is trying to start a nonprofit, I hope this helps!
