It’s that time of year again when students head back to school and clear out of the house after summer vacation. September is a good time to take stock and ramp up for the coming months. One aspect of that reflection should include nonprofit risk management. We all know nonprofits run on extremely slim budgets, with little margin for error. You owe it to your Board, your staff, and your beneficiaries to become familiar with nonprofit risk management principles, which can improve resilience and sustainability for your organization.

Luckily, there’s an easy way for you to do this. Since January, we have been running our “Lean Risk Management for Nonprofits” series, which takes you step by step through the process of developing and implementing a risk management process for your nonprofit. As of today, we have published 11 posts, plus our preview. They are available using the following links:
