Dear Friend,

Where will you take nonprofits next? It's a question we've been asking nonprofit leaders like you since we launched our NonprofitNext initiative two years ago. From coast to coast, Chicago to Hawaii, today's nonprofit leaders are creating innovative and collaborative strategies to navigate the sea change.

Will your organization successfully leverage the converging trends that are reshaping the sector? Or will your organization fall prey to what I call the Nonprofit Paradox? Read my article in the Summer issue of Stanford Social Innovation Review and learn how your organization can ensure a healthy and sustainable culture.

Yours in learning,

David La Piana
