Dive deeper into the data and insights. @SarahNicole838 shares more about the research on our blog, including expanded recommendations for your nonprofit. 🧵7/7#nonprofitt blog.candid.org/post/non-profi…q
What does this mean for your nonprofit? If your budget is less than $1M, consider a positive mission statement, focused on philosophy + vision. Conversely, if your budget is more, emphasize the problem you’re working to solve + use slightly less positive tone. 🧵6/7#nonprofitt
Does who you serve matter? Mission statements that focused on beneficiaries, philosophy, and org itself strongly related to higher revenue compared to expenses. This is surprising as conventional wisdom cautions against self-promotion. 🧵5/7#nonprofittresearchgate.net/publication/35…O
For larger organizations, the relationship was reversed. For nonprofits with gross revenue over $1 million, positively-worded mission statement was associated with less money. 🧵4/7#nonprofitt
How sad is your mission statement? For nonprofits with gross revenue under $1 million, a more positively-worded mission statement was associated with more money raised per dollar spent. 🧵3/7#nonprofittresearchgate.net/publication/35…P
An effective nonprofit mission statement engages and excites supporters. But how much does it really matter? New research from @SarahNicole838, @AplinHoutz, and Maureen Casile may have you rethinking your mission statement. 🧵1/7#Nonprofitt
