What challenges can nonprofit organizations expect to confront as 2020 dawns? As a consultant, I like solving problems and coming up with answers for clients, but predicting the future is a little beyond my talents. Therefore, to start off this year, I thought it would be helpful to share what others were predicting for the nonprofit sector in the coming year.
A roundtable of nonprofit leaders forecast nine challenges facing the sector in 2020. How will nonprofits fill service gaps not sufficiently covered by government programs—which includes mental health, personal health, the environment, housing and social justice or others? The roundtable also recommend that nonprofits prioritize improve management by boosting talent retention and improving collaboration and resource-sharing with other organizations.
