Abstract

How do we ensure that non-profits can survive and thrive in an economic downturn? This article proposes that building powerful networks is the path that non-profits, especially small and medium-sized ones, should take. Based on four decades of community organizing experience at Spirit in Action and other national non-profits, we show how to successfully build multi-racial and welcoming networks. We present examples and a case study that describe step-by-step the critical elements needed for a network to function well for all participants, and how to build a force for change.
