Nonprofit organizations play a key role in our efforts to end gender-based violence and other forms of injustice and to build safe and thriving communities. In order to ensure that nonprofits are able to be as effective and mission-driven as possible in their programmatic work, they need to have a solid infrastructure. This collection offers key information on nuts and bolts of managing a nonprofit, and resources to support organizations in their journey to dismantle structural racism and center racial equity. Particular attention is paid to the importance of building a strong and diverse board and staff, helpful fundraising strategies, managing the organization's finances, and ways to promote a healthy workplace through human resources management.
"Leaders, even the most visionary, cannot do this work alone. Strong, healthy organizations that understand their unique contributions are needed to power the ideas and change we want." - Move to End Violence
