Organisational Development Community of Practice – How Can Organisational Development Support Avert the Non-profit Starvation Cycle?
The Organisational Development Community of Practice will host “How Can Organisational Development Support Avert the Non-profit Starvation Cycle??” online on 4 December.
The OD Community has placed “power” and how it manifests itself in grantmaker-grantee relations at the core of its activities in the past year. This topic is also central when it comes to the financial capacity of non-profit organisations and in particular, the non-profit starvation cycle. Many grantees continue to show reticence in bringing up conversations about “true costs” out of a fear of negative reactions from grantmakers. Acknowledging this, philanthropic organisations became less restrictive during the COVID-19 pandemic and there is a growing awareness of the non-profit starvation cycle across the sector.
The next online session of the OD Community of Practice will dive into how organisational development support can avert the starvation cycle for non-profits. As a key part of the Funding for Real Change initiative and a pioneer in working with grantee partners to fund real costs, peers from the Oak Foundation will lead the session.
This session is open to funders only.
