Most of us who are funders, nonprofit leaders and staff are at a point that even naming the list of nonprofit overhead functions is hard to do because overhead is not and cannot be the focus of our attention.

As the nonprofit sector continues to experience financial volatility, innovative funding is required for organizational efficiency. However, there are increasing limitations on funding for back office functions that are essential for nonprofits to do their work. Shared administrative or “back office” services are an effective solution to this growing issue, by helping organizations collaborate and build capacity together.

The resource, titled Rethinking Overhead: Daring to Share Resources, contains in-depth discussions of the latest theories and strategies for nonprofits sharing back office services.
It is an online course with 6 easy-to-follow modules focused on real organizations, from across the US, that offer shared accounting, data management, IT, HR, fund development services and more. Participants will also be able to hear directly from shared services clients that are finding new ways to access essential services and use their precious resources more effectively through individual video interviews.

Other key takeaways include:

  •     A clear definition and explanation of nonprofit shared services
  •     Potential benefits for organizations, service providers and communities
  •     Practiced shared services models
  •     Lessons learned from shared services participants
  •     Important questions to help guide organizations through the shared services process

“Most of us who are funders, nonprofit leaders and staff are at a point that even naming the list of nonprofit overhead functions is hard to do because overhead is not and cannot be the focus of our attention. That said, The Nonprofit Centers Network is really trying to change this narrative. We know that overhead is essential, because our organizations are essential. So, we developed this resource to encourage the development of new strategies that include shared overhead services.” Jackie Cefola, Director of Consulting, The Nonprofit Centers Network
