Changing the Paradigm: Leveraging Infrastructure and Technology to Advance the Business of Not-for-Profit Organizations

By Ira Machowsky

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Fall 2010

Despite certain inherent differences in the structure, values, and ownership of not-for-profit and for-profit organizations there are many important similarities between these organizations - including an aspiration to achieve goals and advance mission, the drive to gain market share and have impact, and the need to generate and assure profit or surplus, as the case may be, to remain relevant, to grow, to flourish, and to be responsible to both their stakeholders and consumers/constituents. It is from these similarities that we should search for parallels and lessons from the best run businesses in either sector to strengthen not-for-profit organizations and enable them to become high-performing enterprises. More than ever, not-for-profits have to think differently to survive and thrive in the new economy.
