Like all other types of businesses, nonprofit organizations are subject to changes brought on by an evolving marketplace. From new technologies to shifting consumer interests, there are countless things that could impact the way a nonprofit operates.
To get a glimpse into the future of nonprofits, we asked a panel of Forbes Nonprofit Council members which factors they believe will influence or change the way their organization functions over the next several years. Their best answers are below.
1. Growth and awareness
As membership increases, the ability to reach new audiences will climb. As our mission aims to generate positive press for chiropractic care, we have to consistently tailor our key messages to continue to bring change to the healthcare landscape. – Sherry McAllister, Foundation for Chiropractic Progress
2. New digital opportunities
Technology will change how we reach our audience, providing new opportunities to work together and increased efficiencies. Also, connectivity will link us more closely together, potentially helping our nonprofits more quickly reach those in need of what we offer. – Gloria Horsley, Open to Hope
